Connect with Start-Ups & Ronnie Leten @CORDA campus

Inspiring evening with Ronnie Leten & the start-ups of CORDA campus!

CORDA houses over 200 great scale-ups & starters on their campus in Hasselt. Our partners & members were invited to meet a few of them together with Ronnie Leten (ex-Atlas Copco) and they were not left wanting!

To start off the event we were joined by Ronnie Leten (ex-Atlas Copco) & Michèle Thissen (Stravagante). During a short interview Michèle shared her experiences of what it's like beginning your own start-up. She told us a bit more about the advantages ànd the challenges she has faced since starting Stravagante. Ronnie has been coaching Michèle from the get go and shared his insights on what every start-up faces and where their focus should lie.

Up next was Raf Degens (Algemeen directeur CORDA campus) who gave a short presentation on CORDA's history, what they have already accomplished since taking over the old Philips site in Hasselt and what their plans are for the future! If you'd like to learn more on the story that Raf shared with us, be sure to head over to the Related tab where you can download the full presentation.
