Show us your entrepreneurial skills!

Are you passionate about entrepreneurship and do you have an innovative mindset? The Vlerick Venture Challenge is the ideal opportunity to prove that you have the right entrepreneurial blood in your veins. During this one day event, student teams of 4 to 5 people have to come up with an innovative idea that responds to a disruptive trend (eg. Smart Cities, Artificial Intelligence,...). 

What will this day look like?

After an introductory session on design thinking, teams are assigned to one of three major disruptive trends as put forward by our several companies. The three themes we will be working around include artificial intelligence, mobility and simplification. You will then have to implement some design thinking concepts and come up with an innovative idea that responds to the trend that has been assigned to your team. Throughout the day you will be coached by Vlerick faculty and our partner companies. At the end of the day, you will present your solution to a jury of experts and managers of our partner companies FordShowpad and Silverfin.

Why should you participate?

Participating teams will get the experience of what being a student at Vlerick Business School feels like. Moreover, you will gain insights in hot topics such as design thinking. There is an opportunity to network with likeminded students, Vlerick faculty members and managers of our partner companies. And last but not least, the members of the winning teams will receive a €1.500 discount on the tuition fee for one of the Masters at Vlerick Business School.

Who can enter?

All students who are currently studying at Masters’ degree level. Students are eligible from any university and from any background. Applications should be made individually and students will be selected based on their motivation to participate. Therefore, an application form should be filled in with your resume and a motivation of maximum 350 words. Based on your CV and motivation, we will compose balanced teams.
