New Business Development

Realise sustainable growth by exploring and implementing new business opportunities

    If you want to grow your business, you need to constantly be on the look-out for new opportunities. But this is only half the challenge. Once you identify an opportunity, you need to be able to turn it into a concrete project, implement it, make it sustainable – and ultimately, make it profitable.

    New Business Development shows you which avenues your business can help you grow in a sustainable way. You’ll gain insights into strategies for growth – including developing new products and services, defining new business models, reaching new customers and setting up strategic partnerships.

    We’ll give you the tools to develop a sound business plan and the confidence to pitch your idea to management. We’ll give you advice on how to structure your proposal, make a plan and build the right team to move it forward. You’ll present your ideas during sounding board sessions – and get valuable feedback from faculty, peers and your colleague or supervisor.

    Through a combination of lectures, real-life cases, guest speakers and coaching, you’ll become more entrepreneurial – and get the knowledge and skills you need to make a real contribution to your organisation’s growth.



If the regulations change, we will reconsider which format is best suited for this programme. You can rely on our agility and know-how to adapt your programme’s format to create the best solution. So, whether you learn with us on campus or online – or a hybrid of the two – you can be sure of a great experience.

  1. Founders are more cautious in their financial forecasts for investors than non-founders

    In the forecasts they have to report to their investors, entrepreneurs overestimate their revenues for the following year by an average of 22%. Founders are consciously more cautious than non-founders. Investors who apply a standard discount to revenue forecasts therefore run the risk of being quite inaccurate themselves. Finally, over-optimism is penalised. Those who truly exaggerate find themselves being labelled as risky businesses. These are the most important conclusions of a new study on the use of entrepreneurs’ revenue forecasts as a tactic to impress investors.
  2. Fast-growing companies serve as a beacon of employment during the coronavirus storm

    Fast-growing businesses are known as the engine of job creation. The 2020 Belgian High Growth Monitor shows that 920 fast-growing companies were responsible for 52,779 new jobs. Although these figures reveal that Belgium is doing less well than the European average, this group of healthy Belgian ‘gazelles’ does show stability. Over the years they have created around 50,000 jobs during each growth period. A hopeful sign, especially now that many companies are having trouble keeping their heads above water.
