Build a bridge, establish a bond

On the occasion of its 65th anniversary, Vlerick Business School will be organising a special edition of the Vlerick Award.
To celebrate this milestone year, we will present two important awards for entrepreneurs in business: our traditional Vlerick Award for an established business personality and a new prize called the Vlerick Venture Award.

The Vlerick Venture Award will be offered to a young, entrepreneurial Vlerick alumna/us whose organisation has delivered growth and made a positive impact on society. We will honour 3 entrepreneurs, one of whom will go home with this new and prestigious award.

This will be a unique occasion to bring 6 top business personalities together: 3 Vlerick Award and 3 Vlerick Venture Award nominees will be able to exchange ideas between their respective organisations.

We are certain this occasion will generate many interesting conversations amongst recognised business leaders and younger entrepreneurial talent, and lead to learning on both sides as we look to build bridges and establish bonds amongst entrepreneurs in Belgium. 

  • Vlerick alumna/us
  • <40 years
  • Owner or founder of an organisation in the profit or non-profit sector
  • Organisation has shown growth and made a positive impact on society

Our jury, consisting of a small committee of 9 experienced entrepreneurs, investors and experts from the Vlerick faculty (see our “Entrepreneurs in Residence”) will select the final 3 nominees. The ‘Venture Award’ winner will be announced during our The Vlerick Awards Ceremony on Thursday 7 June in Brussels at the same time we announce who has won our annual Vlerick Award.


Nominations for our Vlerick Venture Award have been closed.
