Dear AIESEC entrepreneurs:
We are very pleased to confirm that as part of the Spark conference organized by AIESEC France, there will be an online #ISUM session re #AIESEC and #entrepreneurship. The session will be in English and is dedicated to AIESEC students and alumni.
Book the date: October 30, from 6pm to 7.30pm Paris time.
We will announce soon the international speakers.
Dear AIESEC Alumni:
Startups represent technological businesses with high growth potential and many people from our network are finding and developing opportunities through very attractive investments.
In order to connect with them, we have organized ISUM Lima: a unique annual space where performers from this network are connected. The meeting has brought some answers: How to develop a startup, get investments funds and clarify the opportunities of investing in startups. The 5th global edition was designed to meet the needs of the Peruvian’s technology environment. The event reached startups, entrepreneurs, investors and people interested in the theme. To strengthen the brand and reach the stakeholders, ISUM Lima counted with press partners such as technology blogs, magazines, TV channels and important actors on the local market. Furthermore, ISUM Lima gained the endorsement of a well-established company in the telecommunication market: Claro. As a national sponsor, Claro supported the event’s initiative and believed in the impact it can bring for the local development of new businesses.
The 5th global edition took place on Saturday 2nd of November at the Universidad Pacífico, Lima. As an international speaker, Fernando Moncayo was present: an AIESEC Alumni from Ecuador and CoFounder of Startup Ventures, global fund for entrepreneur projects at the region. Fernando was recognized by the Alumni global network as the entrepreneur of the year (2011) and has several companies on the market. What could you expect from ISUM? If you were a service provider, startup, wanted to launch an startup or would like to become an investor, you were able to attend a roundtable with investors, press room, coverage, and pitch of startups on early stage, talks with leaders from the Peruvian government funds, startup cases and angel investors.
For follow-up information, do not hesitate to contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org. ISUM Lima was organized thanks to AIESEC Alumni Peru, Lima Valley and InvierteMe, and had also the sponsorship of AIESEC Alumni International. After ISUM Lima, the closest ISUM will be ISUM México in March 2014.

ISUM, The International Start-Ups Meeting 2013 held in Tunis is proudly sponsored by:
Official Sponsor and Partner of the ISUM start-ups challenge:

ISUM is the opportunity for startup to pitch.
In a confidential meeting, each startup will have 5 minutes for pitching in a very professional manner its business plan (either in French or in English). Then they will answer questions from the jury of professional investors (DIVA SICAR, UGFS and Carthage Business Angels as well as international business angels) for 10 minutes. The Jury will be presided by Mr Mondher KHANFIR, Program Coordinator at Carthage Business Angels, co-founder and CEO at WIKI Startup SA.
In the next edition of ISUM in Tunis in May 2013, this is what you will find:
1 – Exchange of experience between startup founders from different countries: In the networking sessions, we believe you will learn a lot from the experience of others in your own country but also from other countries; one idea successful in another country can be successful in your own.
2 – Workshops: you will learn how to find new ideas for your startup from the entrepreneurs themselves, how to make your business plan efficiently, how to market well to your targeted customers, how to create and manage your team, how to build a partnership agreement, how to raise funds with business angels and/or VCs;
We want to be operational in these sessions; therefore we boost Q&A sessions!
3 – Pitch sessions and the AIESEC alumni startup challenge: if you are ready to pitch in front of a jury of advisors and investors, ISUM will be your opportunity to do so.
Each selected startup will have 5 minutes of pitch and 10 minutes of questions & answers with the jury. This is a great opportunity to test your pitch and get immediate feed-back.
In this startup challenge, the jury will determine the best projects who will receive in-kind services by the sponsors of the event. And if you are really successful, you could even get the appointment to actually get funded!
The ISUM jury is giving priority for registration to AIESEC startup; but it is an open meeting: local entrepreneurs who are not AIESECers will be able to bring attention to their startup as well, notably if they want their startup to grow internationally.
ISUM is an initiative supported by AIESEC Alumni International.
