    Category: Programme news

    Tech entrepreneur Jelle Van De Velder and doctor Servaas Bingé got talking more than two years ago when Jelle wanted to walk the 10 Miles and visited Servaas for a preventive sports examination consultation. “The dashboard in your car tells you how things are looking at any given moment. Warning lights indicate problems with the engine, the oil pressure or the tyre pressure and let you know when maintenance is required,” says Jelle. “We wondered whether we could do something similar for the human body.” That was the beginning of their start-up, Emma Health, a digital platform for data-driven, personalised preventive healthcare. Our ‘Accelerating Your Healthcare Start-up’ programme gave their start-up a boost.

  6. A contemporary take on entrepreneurship

    Date:
    Category: Opinions

    Until now, only forms such as public or private limited companies actually counted as ‘real’ entrepreneurship. As a result of the change in the law, liberal professions, farms and non-profit organisations will finally count as fully-fledged companies too. This expansion responds to the plea by researcher Tine Holvoet for a more varied understanding of entrepreneurship. A recent and extensive report by Graydon shows the importance of non-profit organisations as well. We gain insights into the numbers and categories, the number of jobs created and the economic health of the organisations in our country.

  7. Connect first, then lead

    Date:
    Category: Opinions

    The dimensions warmth and competence determine 90% of our impressions of the people around us. If you want to create a sense of trust you need both. Employees also apply these criteria to their managers. Leaders we see as competent but not very warm are often feared and envied. On the other hand, leaders who are considered warm but less competent often evoke pity and a lack of respect. Since it’s all a matter of perception, it is your duty as a leader to change that perception if you need to do so to create a more trusting relationship with your staff. Professor Karlien Vanderheyden show you how you can do that.

    Businesses across the world invest time and resource into defining their strategic direction – whether it’s a three-year plan or a short strategy cycle. But in unpredictable, disruptive markets, neither long-term plans or short-term strategies work well. Luckily, there is a third option. Adaptive strategy is an ongoing strategic conversation that adapts to changes in the market. It makes sure we continue to follow the best path as the world around us evolves. Professor Carine Peeters explains more.
