Why this programme?

Leading a growing SME is not an easy job. Managing employees, negotiating with suppliers, following up the most important customers, discussions with accountants and banks ... demand all of your time and attention.

So there’s hardly any time for the important questions. Am I working with the right suppliers? Which customers are profitable? What information should I track to manage my business? Where do I want to be in 5 or 10 years? How will my organisation be then? How do I make my company less dependent on me? What does innovation mean for my business? How can I grow in the best way? What might that cost?

It's difficult to find people with whom you can discuss your plans and problems. What you must do is step back from your business for a moment and look in the mirror. By participating in this programme, you:

  • Learn how you can make your employees less dependent on you, by working on – instead of in – your company.
  • Analyse your business and make choices for the future, based on a reliable methodology and under the guidance of a panel of experts.
  • Network concerning content, together with your fellow participants, to discover answers to your questions about your entrepreneurship. 
  • Join the extensive network of Vlerick Alumni.

  1. Only 2 in 5 founders of young scale-ups pay themselves a salary

    The majority of all scale-ups in Belgium today were founded by a team, usually composed of two people who know one another well. Often, they hold a C-level position in which the directorship of the company is shared between the two. Their remuneration consists primarily of shares and cash, with shares as the primary form of remuneration, particularly in the first few years. Only two in five founders of young scale-ups actually pay themselves a salary, while only about half of all scale-ups conclude dynamic share purchase agreements from the start about the course of action to be taken should one of the founders leave the company or take up another position.
  2. Belgian growth companies keep the local economy afloat

    While we are bombarded with negative news on banks, insurers and tech producers, Belgian growth companies appear to be keeping the Belgian economy afloat. They may account for a fraction of all Belgian companies with a minimum of ten employees, but they generate exponential growth in employment and productivity. This has emerged from the ‘Belgian High-Growth Monitor’, a study that analyses the evolution and characteristics of growth companies in Belgium.
