Raleigh campus: SKEMA Ventures startup workshop

Share   

​Thirty-nine attendees braved the wind, rain and cold to attend the SKEMA Ventures Startup Kafe hosted at partner company HQ Raleigh. 

Students joined SKEMA Ventures to better understand the process from start to finish, of what it takes to become a successful entrepreneur.  

A large portion of the process is to pitch an idea to an audience for peer review. Thirteen students gave presentations on a variety of topics. 

Guest speaker Jean-Marc Rollin wrapped up the evening by demonstrating Nuvotronics, a technology start up born in Raleigh. Rollin guided the students through its application of the technology as well as the highs and lows of building the technology, sharing the honest truth about being an entrepreneur. 

SKEMA Ventures encompasses teaching, coaching, incubation and acceleration of students' startup companies.

Here are some stats for SKEMA Ventures:
  • 91% survival rate after five years
  • 150 projects pitched per year
  • 100 projects incubated per year
  • Over 150 mentors and experts in the Venture family
