A look back at the SKEMA Social Ventures Summit

10 May 2021

This first edition of the SKEMA Ventures Summit was organised with strong support from different SKEMA teams: Marketing & Communications, Alumni and Fundraising, Transformation and Digital and, of course, SKEMA Ventures. The collective effort made it a success, with around 800 registrations, over 1,000 interactions and messages throughout the day, and over 200 contacts made via the virtual stands.

Students, entrepreneurs, committed business leaders, professors, and experts in social entrepreneurship talked with participants online (with a steady audience of over 300 people and nearly 600 at the peak time) about the progress made in achieving sustainable development goals and the best practices for creating and developing entrepreneurial projects with a sound impact.
The speakers included Jean-Philippe Courtois, executive vice president and president of global sales, marketing and operations at Microsoft, president and co-founder of the Live For Good association, Chairman of the Board of Directors of SKEMA and an alumnus (1983); Alice Guilhon, dean and executive president of SKEMA; Florence Oulès, head of mission, inclusive development & SSE, IDF Region; Sébastien Malod, vice-president, Réseau Entreprendre; Jean-Pierre Blanc, director of Malongo; Christophe Conceicao, head of operations at Live for Good; Guillaume Boudy, mayor of Suresnes, and many others.
