Discover the experience of the Autumn 2017 graduates and the names of the Spring 2018 participants! (17:30-21:00)
Launching a successful start-up not only takes a great and innovative idea but also courage and exhaustive preparation. The Autumn 2017 edition of Luxinnovation’s Fit 4 Start programme offered ICT start-ups four months of intensive, top-quality support that focused on issues that are absolutely crucial for success. The graduates will present their experiences from the acceleration programme, and the names of the selected Spring 2018 participants will be announced.
As always, an outstanding keynote speaker : Piet Colruyt, will speak about the lessons learnt on his road to start-up success and beyond. Piet Colruyt is one of four family directors of Korys, the family holding behind Colruyt Group, Belgium’s leading retailer. In 2010, he created his own holding company Impact Capital. It invests locally in promising companies including social enterprises and inclusive businesses where the societal mission is combined with a for-profit business model because he sees money as a means to change the world.
Please RSVP before the 9 March. Places are limited.
