“The SME Challenge is the ideal way to hold a mirror up to yourself and your company. Is your business model still viable? Do you have the right focus? Are you selling your services properly? Everything that seems self-evident is challenged and questioned. Thanks to this programme, we learned to aim higher with our company, and we succeeded in making the right decisions. The programme gave us a critical sounding-board and access to theoretical insights. The other participants were also a great enrichment: new, sustainable contacts that have grown into partnerships for exciting and innovative projects. Highly recommended for every SME that wants to grow and deliver the best of itself!”

“As people with different profiles and backgrounds take this course, you are confronted with reflexes which are less quickly addressed in our own sector. By nature, we don’t tend to lie awake at night thinking about profit, growth, optimisation processes… I found the perspective of people who do just that fascinating. It also gave me the insight that it’s not wrong to think that way, either.”

“The programme provided the guidelines I needed. The theoretical framework gave me a language to manage the financial, more operational side of the agency. Among other things, the coaching process generated the business plan which we are currently using. These tools gave me a clear overview of the firm and allowed me to think along with the others about the future.”

  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.
