Vlerick Student Entrepreneurship Fund Pitch

Category: Corporate Events

Entrepreneurship is something we hold dearly at the School. To help our students, both current and former, in their fundraising efforts we established the Vlerick Student Entrepreneurship Fund. After a formal selection made by a jury of experts, we will give ventures the chance to pitch their start-up idea to a jury of Vlerick professors, Founding Members of the Student Entrepreneurship Fund and Entrepreneurs in Residence. We hope to welcome many of you there!

For whom?

  • Your venture is maximum 5 years old by November 15th 2019 
  • Our current and alumni degree students (Masters/MBAs) 
  • Our current and alumni participants of the Executive Master Class in Innovation and Entrepreneurship and the long-term management programmes.
    (teams need to have 1 alumnus at a minimum) 
  • The venture for which funding is asked for is in a pilot or proof-of-concept stage and its current external cumulative funding is max. €50,000.

When and where?

Tuesday 10 December (15-19.00 pm), Vlerick Campus Ghent

How to participate?

Complete the template you can download here and send it to [email protected] before 15 November. You will be informed if your team made it to the pitching before the end of November.

What’s in it for you?

All selected teams will have the opportunity to pitch their idea to a jury. Your proposal will be assessed by a panel of judges through a competitive process. If you make it to the pitch, the amount of funding you might get for your idea ranges between €5000 and €50.000 and is provided through a grant. Those who receive funding are expected to make a personal, non-binding pledge to return some money to the Vlerick Student Entrepreneurship Fund.

The funding is available for different purposes including, for example, attending international conferences, building early-stage prototypes, hiring expert advice or paying fees for accelerators.

We are looking forward to receive your applications!
