And Connect

innovation festival And& knocks on manley's door

And& Connect, the three-day inspiration festival for entrepreneurs, innovators and investors, asked manley to generate media coverage for their event. That went on from May 2 to 4, 2023 in "European Innovation Capital" Leuven.

"Flemish ecosystem joins forces in startup festival of the year," we informed the press. Because for the first time, numerous organizations in Flanders joined forces to exchange ideas and challenges: Leuven Mindgate, KU Leuven, Imec.istart, Scaleup Flanders, Cronos, Capricorn Partners, Voka, Value Network, UCLL and Belfius.

We arranged an announcement interview in Trends and Tendances with keynote speaker Phillip Inghelbrecht, co-founder of Shazam.

De Standaard brought an in-depth interview on the future of the Belgian startup scene, including Sven De Cleyn, CEO of imec.istart - voted the best mentor of startups in the world - and Lode Uytterschaut of accelerator Start it @KBC. They also interviewed the founders of startups Yeat and Comate.

Television channel ROB-TV stopped by. And Made In published a hotly anticipated interview with Buvana Lefevre, the Leuven entrepreneur behind Alari Technologies, which makes solar panels more profitable.

Mission accomplished! And we and the Manley team enjoyed a fascinating and inspiring day in Leuven, with lots of familiar people! :)
