The Growth Club
with Victoria Hernandez
Are you an entrepreneur with an international scope and a strong desire to grow as well as having a focus on job creation? Then this programme is for you!
Join The Growth Club to connect with peers, learn something new, and eventually look forward to the next gathering.
PWI Brussels’ new Entrepreneurship Programme focusses on the essence of entrepreneurship: generating serendipity. Successful entrepreneurs intuitively understand that increasing the potential for unplanned fortunate coincidences is what sparks above average growth. Those happy coincidences are not found behind a computer screen or locked up in an office staring at a white wall. They are encountered by actively engaging with others, by being curious about what is being said and done, by exchanging ideas and thoughts. What better place to bond than a meal? And, what better time than the end of the month to reflect on the month that has been and prepare for the one coming up.
Join us and become part of the Growth Club - where leaders grow leaders.
During the June Growth Club, Victoria will cover a number of issues related to growth and entrepreneurship. She will, speciaifcally, introduce and explain the Horizon2020 EIC SMEs instrument, which has €520MM grants budget this year, helping to sustain people launching or developing their business.
How to get a subvention? How to get financial help when developing a business?
