Yes Oui Can is a free summer boot camp destined to young people between 18 and 25, who did not pursue their studies after high school for more than two years.

On the agenda every day: sailing activities and workshops. As inspiring sportsman: Jean-Marc Mormeck, well-known boxer and world champion, came to share his experience with the participants. Entrepreneurship experts led workshops on a wide range of themes: personal development, leadership and some to raise awareness to entrepreneurship questions (how to build a business plan, testing the viability of a project, etc.) An essential preparation to pitching was realized, to prepare candidates for the closing ceremony. Disoriented, participants got to become aware of their capacities and skills, to structure their projects and gain confidence to be more convincing. Meetings continued in Paris, including the most surprising one: Akhenaton, at the Institut du Monde Arabe. Visiting companies and incubators, and meeting young successful entrepreneurs contributed to the participants’ discovery of the entrepreneurship reality. After 12 intense days of adventure, each participant got to develop his project. In order to put in practice the skills acquired during these twelve days, participants realized a final pitch of their project in front of a jury composed of professionals and experts, during the closing ceremony at the Embassy of the United States in Paris.
