About the event

For innovation executives

Get inspired by two keynotes – one from the academic and one from the corporate world – and connect with fellow innovation professionals during this network and inspiration event. For the third time, we bring together the Belgian innovation community to share ideas and insights over food, drinks and enticing speakers.

Three start-ups from the Netwerk Ondernemen community will pitch their business. See the TRIBO-electric effect in action and connect with start-up founders who are pushing the boundaries of their industries.

For a selected group of attendees, we will also offer a free trial session of our Innovation Circle concept.

For start-ups (sorry, all start-up seats are taken)

For the first time, we open our networking and inspiration event to the Belgian start-up community. At TRIBO, we bridge the gap between start-ups, scale-ups and corporate companies. Through co-creation we believe that the start-up way of working in combination with corporate innovation initiatives can spark a brighter future for us all.

Feel free to join us for this evening filled with two keynotes and a plethora of networking opportunities. Connect with the Belgian innovation community like never before and open the doors to a future full of possibilities.

Don’t hesitate, because there are only 10 available seats for start-up founders. All seats reserved for start-up founders have been taken.
