On October 31st , we had the first quarterly workshop of Beyond 2019 in the superb environment of Hof ter Loonst. Nico Swinnen, our host, welcomed us in a magnificent barn, remarkably restored and converted into a seminar venue.

The first speaker was Koen Schrever, CEO of KBC Focus Fund. He shared his expertise as an investor and explained to the participants how to convince an investor.

The presentation included an overview of the different types of investors and the importance of choosing the right investors for your company.

In the afternoon, the participants had the opportunity to turn the knowledge they had acquired into practice by preparing a pitch with the assistance of Koen and Cedric Latessa.

The last speaker was Alex Houtart. His focused on the technical details of a new financing vehicle that Spreds proposes exclusively to the Beyond scale-ups in order to raise, quickly and easily, the funds they need to finance their international development.

With an overall positive score of 94% the participants largely appreciated the value of the training and the quality of the speakers. Thank to everybody and see you on the Investor Day, on December 4th.
