Raleigh: bachelor’s and master’s students’ e-clinic bootcamp


As part of SKEMA’s 2018 Global Entrepreneurship Initiative, 40 SKEMA Raleigh students were selected to participate in a one-day entrepreneurship bootcamp at the headquarters in downtown Raleigh, North Carolina, April 20.

The annual event, in collaboration with North Carolina State University’s award-winning Entrepreneurship Clinic, was led by guest speaker Philippe Chereau (pictured, on left), director of SKEMA Ventures along with Lewis Sheats, executive director of N.C. State’s E-Clinic.

Earlier this year, SKEMA students took part in a SKEMA entrepreneurship pitch competition where students competed for an opportunity to work with and consult with owners of the local entrepreneurial community at HQ Raleigh. Lecturer Stephanie Schantz, along with adjunct professors Tim Conway and Alex Viva guided students and informed them on key elements to launch a venture. The pitch competition challenged students with a variety of business concepts, tough queries by judges from the local community and a rigorous voting process. Winners of the competition went on to the entrepreneur bootcamp held at headquarters where they  gained further knowledge from N.C State experts: Tim Michaelis (start up financial modelling) and Dr Jeff Pollack (managing a growth venture), and Dr Philippe Chereau, director of SKEMA Ventures, who highlighted go-to-market strategies.

For details about the ongoing alliance of SKEMA and N.C. State, please reach out to Oussama Ammar, U.S. SKEMA academic director.
