A JOURNEY WITH PIONEERS
We regard fundraising as a journey together with pioneers. From our initial ideas and tests back in 2017, we've explored and learned along the way. An overview of a few milestones so far.
A sweet spot
The idea of the Student Entrepreneurship Fund hits a sweet spot among the many successful entrepreneurs in the Vlerick community. Besides giving back, you also want to be inspired by the new generation of entrepreneurs. Bringing captains of industry, like alumnus Paul Bulcke from Nestlé, together with young entrepreneurial alumni sparks truly engaging interactions.
Beyond the Vlerick community
The purpose of our fundraising also resonates with people from outside the Vlerick community. Artist Arne Quinze welcomes a group of donors to his house and is happy to have a piece of his art auctioned. The proceeds go to the Vlerick Scholarship Fund.
Reconnecting with international alumni
International alumni, like Eric, Jeroen, Nick and Laura in New York, really want to reconnect. After all these years, they still have a warm heart for the School and want to give back in some way or another.
