• A gathering of the main players in tech startup support in Belgium
WFMC has been facilitating 2 workshops
Session 1 - Go to market (GTM): defining your market & convincing customers
As entrepreneur, you are the most important asset in your company. You have a clear idea of the product you are building and the customers you want to cater for. It is all cristal clear in your mind! But are your ready for your first sales meeting? Is your sales pitch ready to convince your first customer to sign in?
During the GTM workshop, Geert Coppens, co-founder at Moovly and CEO at Instruxion, Guy Dehond, CEO at Inventive Designers and Youri Dauber, co-founder and managing director at Soccha, shared their experience. Ben Geysen (NewsEngine PR) and Bart Frison (WFMC) presented best practices to build a pragmatic go-to-market plan to reach out efficiently to the right customers and to generate sales.
Session 2 - Building the "A team" for your startup: theory, testimonials and live matchmaking
Investors say: better an “A team” with a “B idea” than the other way around. Your first job as entrepreneur is building your own A team! Leo Exter (westartup.eu) and Ingrid Willems (WFMC) presented a bit of theory, we shared the real stories of startup founder teams and we ran a live matchmaking exercise.
Presentations by Leo Exter (westartup.eu) and Ingrid Willems (WFMC) and very interesting testimonials on the winning team of In the Pocket by Jeroen Lemaire, eMenKA by Tjorven Denorme, Global Enterprise by Jean-Yves Huwart and Soccha by Youri Dauber.
Large part of the session were dedicated to live matchmaking enabling to meet like-minded entrepreneurs & experts.
