Entrepreneurship 2.0
Understanding the challenges of tomorrow’s innovators makes it easier to give them support today. To achieve this, Deloitte Belgium has partnered with Vlerick Business School to create Entrepreneurship 2.0.
Through this partnership, Professor Veroniek Collewaert published the Rising Star Monitor – a snapshot of the trends and challenges for young, high-potential ventures in Belgium.
This highlighted that breaking through from startup to scaleup and beyond needs more than a great idea. It requires a strong founding team that, crucially, organises itself in a sustainable form. This includes how founding teams approach decision-making, and how they structure remuneration and equity.
Focusing on the next generation of high-potential ventures
To me, the roundtables are the perfect mix of theoretical and practical experience that is necessary to accelerate the business of UgenTec. The clear focus on scaleups brings together a group of likeminded entrepreneurs to share their experiences and learn from each other’s strengths and pitfalls.

UgenTec is the 2016 winner of Most Disruptive Innovator award in the Rising Star category of Deloitte’s Technology Fast 50.
The partnership also facilitates Entrepreneurship 2.0 Roundtables – a year-long programme of workshops that support young, high-potential companies on their journey to rapid growth. The programme creates a community of innovators who share and learn together.
The workshops cover issues identified as crucial to the long-term health of startups, including external financing, negotiation, governance and compensation. This is backed by tailored advice from a panel of experts.
