Startup Weekend Changemakers and Securex Partner To Unite Industry, Education, and Action
This post originally appeared on blog.up.co
We’re excited to announce that we’ve partnered with Securex for Startup Weekend Changemakers edition that will take place on November 13-15th on the Brussels campus of Vlerick Business School.
Startup Weekend seeks to be the starting point of any startup, where ideas pop up, exceptional teams form, and business models are developed. Securex appears to be the next step after Startup Weekend as it focuses on offering guidance and support to budding entrepreneurs.
Their end product is two-fold: Lead entrepreneurs through each of the formalities they face when starting a business and personal guidance for starting their business, like fine-tuning a business plan, assessing risks, financial support, and much more – all in one place.
It’s a natural partnership for both organizations, as it gives the opportunity to Startup Weekend to offer continuity and follow-up to the winning teams. Also, both Organizations believe that putting smart, driven people from separate parts of the tech world together can yield amazing results. Startup Weekend, for example, has long been successful because it brings together people with very different backgrounds and provides them with a platform to work together.
As Securex grows, they’re looking to foster innovation in the Belgian startup ecosystem as well as refine how they support entrepreneurs and individual growth.
As part of the partnership, Securex is offering significant financial support to scale up the Changemakers edition, 12 hours business coaching to winning Startup Weekend teams, and three free tickets to Startup Weekend Changemakers (grab your chance on Je lance ma boîte or Ik Start mijn Zaak).
