An entrepreneurial spirit flows through our school – inspiring our students to think bigger, connect with the most up-to-the-minute approaches, and achieve. Because of this spirit, we want to help as many of our students and alumni to achieve their entrepreneurial dreams as we can. Which is why we set up the Vlerick Student Entrepreneurship Fund – to give you the opportunity to secure funding to take your venture to the next level.
You can apply for the Vlerick Student Entrepreneurship Fund if:
Your pitching team must include at least one Vlerick student or alumnus.
If your team is selected, you’ll have the opportunity to pitch your venture to a jury – and you may get a grant of between €5000 and €50,000. You can use this money in a number of ways – for example, attending an international conference, building a prototype, hiring expert advice or paying accelerator fees.
If you’re awarded a grant, we ask you to make a personal pledge to return some money to the Vlerick Student Entrepreneurship Fund – and to be an ambassador of the Fund and Vlerick Business School in the future.
We look forward to receiving your application and finding out all about your venture!
