Want to start your own business? HEC SEED is for you

17 April 2015

Entrepreneurship is an increasingly common path for business school graduates. In a recent poll, HEC Paris revealed that one-quarter of its graduates each year now start their own business, up from 9% a decade ago.

Current students from HEC Paris have organized an international entrepreneurship forum, HEC SEED, a first-of-its-kind for France’s leading business school. To be held on Saturday, 18 April 2015, HEC SEED fosters directed networking between students, young founders and successful startups.

Speakers at the event include Nasir Zubairi, one of Wall Street Journal’s 40 most influential European FinTech innovators, Bruno Walther, 2012 IBM Global Entrepreneur of the Year, Claude Grunitzky, Johannes Bittel, Stefan van der Fluit and Christian Vanizette. They will cover the latest trends in entrepreneurship and challenges faced by startups.

Interactive workshops

Among the workshop participants, Boris Golden, principal at Partech Ventures—a VC partnership with $650 million under active management—will discuss funding, while Liam Boogar, editor of the Rude Baguette , will describe media relations strategies for startups. Other participants will cover topics including payment services, product marketing, idea generation, networking, growth, sales, venture capital and recruitment.
