Join us at our upcoming startup fairs where we aim to match future talent with promising startups & scale-ups and connect with the next generation of entrepreneurs.

With the help of our large-scale network, our impactful partners, and online networking tool, Conversation Starter, we want to bridge the gap between talent and high-growth startups & scale-ups.

In 2020 we organized our first ever virtual job fairs: Antwerp Startup Fair on October 20 & Leuven Startup Fair on October 28! Keep in touch and subscribe to our Startup Fairs newsletter.

How does it work?

As experienced organizers of multiple startup fairs, we've seen the need for talent and the difficulty of finding new employees. And with digital being the new normal it was a no-brainer to relocate our fairs to an online environment! Participate in our reinvented startup job fair and meet potential future employees in a short amount of time and all from the comfort of your own (home) office. 

With the help of our large-scale network, our impactful partners, and online networking tool, Conversation Starter, we want to bridge the gap between talent and high-growth startups & scale-ups.
