An inspiring evening with start-ups!

Great location, great speakers & great start-ups! Everyone present at De Serre was in agreement that our event to connect with the start-ups at StartupVillage was a great success!

The night was kicked off by Julie Van Nuwenborg (Project Manager Startup City). Antwerp is a great place for start-ups with the brand new StartupVillage and tons of other initiatives provided by the city.  Julie set the scene by telling us why start-ups should definitely consider setting their roots in Flanders' capital! If you'd like to learn more on the presentation by Julie be sure to head over to our Related tab & download it there.





 

Up next was Arne Bassez (Founder, Skedify). During his short presentation, he explained why it's good/better for your organisation to work with start-ups (e.g. they're more lean, enthousiastic and have high level customer dedication)

In return Koen Pellegrims (Managing Partner, Flow Pilots) gave a short presentation for the start-ups. He explained that, in order to help your start-up grow, you can never underestimate the value of a network like for example ADM. It's important to look for a network like ours with potential customers and invest in networking & creating business.

Before kicking off the networking where the start-ups had the chance to personally meet our members/partners, each start-up was given the chance to introduce themselves in one minute. Here's a list of all the start-ups that were present at the event:
