Sustainability Flash-Hack @The Big Score

The Growcery organized another impactful workshop. This time the subject of our Flash-Hack was sustainability. And as for the setting: the place to be was The Big Score, an international venture capital & corporate innovation sourcing B2B event, at MeetDistrict Ghent.

Why sustainability?

First of all it’s on everybody’s mind and thus an important societal topic.

But furthermore:

  • Even the largest corporate cannot tackle this challenge on its own.
  • Sustainability impacts everyone and all industries
  • It’s necessary to go about this locally, within Belgium and Europe, since we need to take local market / regulations into account.
