NETWORKING

Our ever popular “Start Up Factory” provides new entrepreneurs and students, with either an active project or simply an idea, the opportunity to network with private investors, bank executives and other experts in the Startup Ecosystem. Some startups pitch to the audience of around 150 people. These evening events take place each quarter in Sophia Antipolis, the entrepreneurial hub of the Côte d’Azur, and are conducted in French.

COACHING

The world-famous SBA Venture Academy is a Pitching & Coaching Event jointly organised by The SBA and the SKEMA International Business School. It runs twice a year in April and October. It starts with Thursday afternoon coaching, Friday morning pitching, more coaching and then a final pitching session. Prizes are awarded on the Friday to the three most investible startups. Ten selected companies have the opportunity to benefit from personalized coaching by Business Angels and industry experts. In addition there are three networking opportunities; cocktails on Thursday and Friday, plus lunch on Saturday. This event is in English.

CLOSING

Start Up Invest is an event dedicated to the seed financing of high-tech companies. It allows a dozen entrepreneurs to present their company to a panel of investors and business angels eager to invest in projects with high potential.
