A no-bullshit media about start-ups
An inspiring but uncompromising 100% video/audio media on the joys and difficulties of the entrepreneur journey.
- enable everyone to start a business by having access to the insights and best practices of the best entrepreneurs;
- feature new types of role models (the average CEO of a European startup is 80% of the time a 35-year-old man with a university degree);
- boost the Belgian entrepreneurial ecosystem.
This media addresses 4 challenges:
- The need for start-ups to communicate
They are recruiting, launching new products, opening new markets and raising funds. Even if start-up coverage is improving in mainstream media, there still isn’t enough of it. Above all, the educational tone doesn’t suit the start-up sector whose DNA is more vibrant. And lastly, younger generations find information by watching videos from Konbini, Brut and Quotidien on their smartphones. There’s no start-up info out there in this form (financial info mainly in written form).
- Open up the field of possibilities
In order to attract more people to entrepreneurship, other audiences must be sought, using new formats and new ways of informing people, other than the individual who is over-represented in the world of start-ups: the 35-year-old academic white male (80% of CEOs in Europe)
- Corporates need innovation
Industries are undergoing profound transformations as professions go digital. These companies need to build bridges with the start-up ecosystem to bring innovation into their midst and to recruit future employees.
- VCs need dealflow
The investor profession is undergoing profound changes. There is great competition between funds for the best start-ups. How do you stand out from the competition? By providing relevant content for the start-up community that will enable the fund to attract the best gold nuggets.
