Entrepreneurship is something we hold dearly at the School. To help our students, both current and former, in their fundraising efforts we organize Pitch@Vlerick. After a formal selection made by a jury of experts, we will give max. 10 teams the chance to pitch their start-up idea to a select group of investors, ranging from angel investors to venture capitalists, incubators, accelerators and crowdfunding platforms. Not only does this event provide you with a great opportunity to meet up with a large group of potential investors, you also have the chance to win some great prizes! We hope to welcome many of you there!

For whom?

  • Your venture is maximum 3 years old by 31 July 2020
  • Our current and alumni degree students (Masters/MBAs)
  • Our current and alumni participants of the Executive Master Classes (teams need to have 1 alumnus at a minimum)

When and where?

Wednesday 2 September (2-4 PM), via ZOOM

How to participate?

What’s in it for you?

All selected teams will have the opportunity to pitch their idea to a select group of potential investors. Moreover the winner of this year’s Pitch@Vlerick will be granted a money prize of 5000 EUR* from the newly created ‘Student Entrepreneurship Fund’. Apart from this, also our partners BAN Vlaanderen and Deloitte will give valuable prizes to the winning team and the runner-up.
