startup-weekend-grenobleFrom October 14 to 16 at the CCI formation will take place the new edition of Start-Up Week-End: 54 hours to start a business. This new edition, which will bring together 120 participants, highlights the challenge and adventure of entrepreneurship through the men and women who have inspired the community!

For this sixth edition in Grenoble, and after two editions punctuated by themes (“Sport and Mountain” in 2014, “City 3.0, the city of tomorrow” in 2015), the organizing team decided to give free rein to the imagination of its participants. The only key word: take the plunge!

Quentin Supernant, head of the Start-up Week-end Grenoble 2016 team, tells us more: “The two previous editions have been a success, and each time the theme has inspired the participants. But all ideas have their place in a Start-up Weekend, and this year we have decided to go back to the origins, to finally refocus on the essential: the desire to undertake, to try to make a simple idea a real project, and take the first step! This year, the key word is therefore to take the risk of taking the leap, and why not in the end, the risk… of succeeding! “.
