As a corporate partner, you are invited to several networking events:

  • At our annual Friends of Vlerick Evening, we give the floor to an internationally renowned speaker who addresses a ‘hot’ management topic. It is also an ideal opportunity to meet our other corporate partners and exchange ideas on how to develop your company or business.
  • At our annual research event, we share the insights gained from a research project conducted in collaboration with one of our Prime Foundation Partners. This event – known as the Prime Foundation Partners Council – will be revamped in 2016.

Check the upcoming networking events for our corporate partners.

  1. “There's always a shot ... you just have to find it.”

    Date :

    Put together the knowledge and experience of experts, academics and, especially, fellow entrepreneurs and your next ‘shot’ will be a whole lot better. Learning from each other, that is what the Impulse Centre “Growth Management for Medium Sized Enterprises” (iGMO) is all about. At the beginning of this year, Marc Cosaert, a Partner at EY, and Patrick Couttenier, Director of Corporate Banking at KBC, extended their iGMO Prime Foundation Partnership with Vlerick. They and Professor Hans Crijns explain why.

  2. Can Belgian start-ups conquer the world?

    Date :

    Half of the organisations surveyed in the Rising Star Monitor, a report on the trends and challenges for young, high potential ventures in Belgium, intend to grow, but not always at very high speed. A second major finding refers to the fact that founders often forget to enter into a proper shareholder agreement, which is worrying as one in four founders leaves their company within the first three years. To support high-potential ventures in their path to rapid growth, attention should be paid to attracting potential employees in a more professional manner and providing existing employees with more feedback and a clearly defined career path.

  3. Growth companies remain the driving force behind the Belgian economy

    Date :

    Although they form a small minority of all Belgian companies with at least 10 employees, high-growth companies are making their mark on both employment and economic growth in Belgium. This is evident from the 'Belgian High Growth Monitor', an annual study by Professor Hans Crijns and researcher Yannick Dillen into the evolution and characteristics of Belgian growth companies.
