On the 20th and 21th of September, Euronext’s innovative training programma TechShare is happening again at our campus! TechShare is an educational and mentoring programme dedicated to Tech companies to reach the next stage of development and has welcomed 275 companies since its launch in 2015. The programme aims to familiarise the CEOs of Tech companies with the financial markets.
This unique programme brings together executives from high-growth and innovative SMEs, with experts, academics and renowned entrepreneurs. TechShare also is an excellent networking resource, allowing entrepreneurs and market professionals to interact all year long. For this year’s edition we will welcome 132 tech companies from 12 European countries at our academic campus.
Over the course of two days, top executives from companies in the life sciences, cleantech and TMT industries across Europe will work with our professors from the Rotterdam School of Management in expert sessions and group workshops on business topics which includes the entrepreneurial mindset, leading growth, scaling beyond borders, attracting talents and managing ownership. In addition, there will be founder stories by Onno van de Stolpe, CEO of Galapagos and Brent Wissink, CFO of Takeaway.com who will share their experience of the IP process and how they used capital markets to grow their business internationally.
Our director, Martin Luxemburg, about the event: ‘TechShare represents a clear example of how sharing knowledge and experience can help grow a company. Fueled by our own belief that entrepreneurship is the primary driver for innovation, we develop people and teams to master innovation within their organisation. In our quest to encourage entrepreneurship not only at home but across the globe, we look forward to welcome 125 international tech companies to Erasmus Centre for Entrepreneurship and support them develop their entrepreneurial competences with the academic knowledge and network of Erasmus University Rotterdam.’
