As a corporate partner, you are invited to several networking events:

  • At our annual Friends of Vlerick Evening, we give the floor to an internationally renowned speaker who addresses a ‘hot’ management topic. It is also an ideal opportunity to meet our other corporate partners and exchange ideas on how to develop your company or business.
  • At our annual research event, we share the insights gained from a research project conducted in collaboration with one of our Prime Foundation Partners. This event – known as the Prime Foundation Partners Council – will be revamped in 2016.

Check the upcoming networking events for our corporate partners.

    Strong growth in Belgian mergers and acquisitions market

    Date :

    2015 and the beginning of 2016 were characterised by a pronounced increase in the number of transactions in the Belgian mergers and acquisitions market. Demand is greater than supply, stimulated by easy and cheap access to finance and greater availability of financial resources to investment companies. Furthermore, the persistently low interest rate environment means there is increased interest from family investors, wealthy individuals and foreign private equity funds in Belgian medium-size enterprises. It is therefore not surprising that the prices paid are increasing across all sectors and business sizes. These are the findings from a survey of 142 Belgian mergers and acquisitions experts into their experiences over the past year.

    Raising the bar for smart city ecosystems

    Date :

    Smart cities all around the world are reimagining their future with technology as the new normal. At the same time different definitions abound about what being smart actually means. In order to make the distinction between which projects are mere digital “pixie dust” and which ones will truly reshape the urban future, a better framing is necessary. Ecosystems are a key part to frame which elements will be important in realising truly smart cities. A truly smart city will be that city that succeeds in understanding, activating, orchestrating, servicing and reinventing the complex ecosystems it consists of. In the long run the active management of ecosystems will be more decisive for smart city ambition success than vision, political commitment or technological ability.

  3. Capture the value you deserve

    Date :

    The latest collaborative piece of research undertaken by PwC and Vlerick focuses on how companies engaged in ‘B2B2C’ relationships manage the power game with their channel partners. It questions how suppliers can reinvent their relationship with channel partners to spur profitable growth.

  4. Embrace chaos

    Date :

    How can you ensure sustainable growth in turbulent times? On 29 April we shared the insights we’ve gained from research conducted with business transformation specialist ViCre and explored how the tango – involving an intricate interplay of control and letting go – can help today’s leaders embrace that chaos.
