Raleigh campus: students work with local entrepreneurs


Entrepreneurship Challenge: working with local entrepreneurs on innovative projects in North Carolina, USA.

In teams of four, students in the Master in Management and the Two-Year MSc on SKEMA’s Raleigh campus have been working since the start of the semester on an innovative entrepreneurial project. 

On 2 and 3 February 2017, they presented their ideas in front of a panel of judges that includesd their professor, Dr Scott Cohen, as well as businesspeople and some of the region’s serial entrepreneurs.

Members of the panel of judges include Jim Zibar, co-founder and CEO of Stealz, Inc. and Elaine Lockhead, founder of Thinline.

The eight best teams will join the NC State Entrepreneurship Clinic to work on start-up projects incubated at HQ Raleigh. 

This new course model, piloted by Oussama Ammar, academic director of the Raleigh campus, taught and coached by Scott Cohen, promises to enhance SKEMA students’ participation in the famous entrepreneurial dynamic in the region of the triangle.
