Leadership Event SIM Belgium 28 October

On 28 October the 2nd Leadership Event of SIM Belgium will be held at Leeuwergem Castle in Zottegem, Belgium. The main theme of the event will be “Leadership in innovation brings growth”. Moderated by Kathleen Cools of the VRT, different speakers will give their views on innovation strategies and the importance of leadership.

SIM Belgium stands for ‘Service Innovation Management’ and was founded in 2008 by Boudewijn Dupont. SIM Belgium assists start-up and fast-growing companies in their early stage of development, including financing from business angels or venture capital. This support is linked to active management and monitoring. The financing is designed specifically to fill the so-called ‘equity gap’ (= the start-up phase during which it is difficult for entrepreneurs to find investors for their projects).

Bart Horsten, Managing Director of Horsten International NV, is a certified “Coach for Growth Companies” and works together with SIM Belgium to help start-up companies to develop their strategy and business in China. Thanks to this program Flemish SME's can get up to 50% subsidy when they engage a certified growth coach.
