Vlerick Venture Talks meets In The Spotlight

Category: Research Events

Lots of well-intended advices help entrepreneurs to acquire financial, commercial & managerial skills. Hardly any advice is ever given to help develop the entrepreneur’s personality & attitude. However, personal readiness is probably the most important critical success factor to enable your venture to go to the next level.

This Vlerick Ventures Talks will for the first time be co-hosted with In The Spotlight of EYNovation and will give you some honest and authentic real life testimonials on how to develop as a person entrepreneur.

Vlerick Venture Talks is a free series of inspirational sessions during which entrepreneurs talk about their experience and share their do’s and don’ts in the process of entrepreneurial venturing.

EYnovationTM In The Spotlight is a series of free evening events around specific topics, in which a short keynote is followed by a number of testimonials by startups that fit within the evening’s topic.

What's in it for you?

  • Testimonials by successful entrepreneurs
  • An opportunity to encounter like-minded people and network with (other) entrepreneurs.

Meet the speakers:

Eric Kenis, author of HoekAf, will talk about the BOSI-entrepreneur and introduce the three entrepreneurs
Wouter De Stecker (Cyclocam): “A dream team will get you anywhere”
Tina Stroobandt (World of Waw): “I never had the entrepreneurs attitude until I started”
Hans Constandt (ontoforce): “The personal (readiness) pitfalls as first time entrepreneur“
