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. A Belgian unicorn? Why not!

    Date :

    Deloitte’s Technology’s recent FAST 50 competition put young and promising tech companies in the spotlight. Frederik Falepin from Deloitte and Veroniek Collewaert, professor of Entrepreneurship and jury member, are critical of the average young Belgian technology entrepreneur, however, claiming that they have “insufficient ambition to grow internationally.”

  2. Negotiation Intelligence at Eandis

    Date :

    The energy sector is a dynamic playing field. For a major Belgian player such as Eandis, it is important to take an agile stance. “Being able to react fast and anticipate intelligently is what it’s all about. That also plays a crucial role in negotiations, as the results of our Prime Foundation Partnership at the Centre for Negotiation Intelligence® have demonstrated. In the coming three years, we aim to deepen this consultation model and transfer it to our internal and external stakeholders,” Werner Verlinden, HR Director of Eandis, tells us.

  3. Only 2 in 5 founders of young scale-ups pay themselves a salary

    Date :

    The majority of all scale-ups in Belgium today were founded by a team, usually composed of two people who know one another well. Often, they hold a C-level position in which the directorship of the company is shared between the two. Their remuneration consists primarily of shares and cash, with shares as the primary form of remuneration, particularly in the first few years. Only two in five founders of young scale-ups actually pay themselves a salary, while only about half of all scale-ups conclude dynamic share purchase agreements from the start about the course of action to be taken should one of the founders leave the company or take up another position.
