Starting a company is hard sometimes. There are many pitfalls and there’s never enough certainty. In this expert session from Mercator Launch and Briskr two successful entrepreneurs will share their own journey towards entrepreneurship; Their experience, doubts & pitfalls, lessons learned, but also their successes along their journey. And there’s plenty of room for Q&A to give you feedback/advice on how to successfully grow your own business.
Lucas Noldus is founder and CEO of Noldus Information Technology & professor by special appointment at FNWI. Noldus IT is now a company of 170+ people and is a global player for intelligent software to analyse behaviour. Lucas started the company as a PhD at WUR in need of a solution to annotate animal behaviour. He still works closely with research institutes and contributed to 130 publications.
Vincent de Schepper started out as GP but decided to take another path and founded a website to mediate between GPs and temporary staff. Since 2015 he founded a new startup in AI enabled chatbots; Ooxoo.ai
