Brussels, Belgium – May 9th, 2016. Rice Business Plan Competition Finals is a joint effort between TiE Network and Rice University to encourage entrepreneurship among students. It took place last month in Houston.

 

The Indus Entrepreneurs (TiE) RBPC Angel Investment group awarded nearly $400,000 during the 2016 Rice Business Plan Competition (RBPC) to a handful of technology start-ups revolutionizing the health care and robotics industries. This group of 25 investors from the US, Europe and Asia, through the TiE RBPC Angels, was looking to invest in five university-based innovative start-ups while providing support to the entrepreneurs through mentorship. These start-ups include:

 

Bold Diagnostics (Northwestern University); Gecko Robotics (Carnegie Mellon University); Oncolinx (Dartmouth/Harvard); PreDxion Bio (University of Michigan); as well as 2016 RBPC Champion, TriFusion Devices (Texas A&M).

 

TriFusion Devices from Texas A&M University emerged as the top startup company in the Rice Business Plan Competition (RBPC) at Rice University’s Jones Graduate School of Business.

Commitment to entrepreneurs…it’s the thing that continues to impress me about the TiE community,” said John Reale, President-Elect of TiE Houston.

 

TiE also ran a three-day boot-camp in the days leading to the RBPC, where TiE Charter Members from around the world mentored competing entrepreneurs to improve their pitches, as well as challenge their business plans and approach. TiE Brussels winner at the European level, Eventigrate (Belgium), who was voted as runner-up amongst 42 start-ups during the elevator pitch competition  “…This was a great experience! For 3 days we’ve been challenged by several mentors who have torn our business plan apart in order to put it back together afterwards. These were 3 very intensive days with lots of homework, but our business plan came out much stronger." Gert Trekels, COO, Eventigrate

KU Leuven is Europe's most innovative university!!!

KU Leuven is Europe's most innovative university!!! | Social Entrepreneurship | Scoop.it

KU Leuven has been a centre of learning for almost six centuries. Founded in 1425 by Pope Martin V, KU Leuven bears the double honour of being the oldest extant Catholic university in the world and the oldest university in the Low Countries.

In its early days, KU Leuven university was modelled on the universities of Paris, Cologne, and Vienna. In a short time, it grew into one of the largest and most renowned universities in Europe. Its academic fame attracted numerous scholars who made valuable contributions to European culture. In the sixteenth century the humanist Desiderius Erasmus lectured here, where he founded the Collegium Trilingue in 1517 for the study of Hebrew, Latin, and Greek - the first of its kind. The tutor of the young emperor Charles V, Adriaan Cardinal Florensz of Utrecht, was a professor here before being elected in 1522 as the last non-Italian Pope before Pope John Paul II. The philologist, legal scholar, and historian Justus Lipsius taught here for many years.

The mathematician Gemma Frisius helped to lay the foundations of modern science and tutored many famous scientists, including the cartographer Gerard Mercator, whose map projection is still in use, the botanist Rembert Dodoens, and the father of modern anatomy, Andreas Vesalius. In a later period, the theses of the Leuven theologian Cornelius Jansenius provoked a large and heated controversy both inside and outside the Church. In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, KU Leuven was an important training centre for Roman Catholic intellectuals from Protestant countries. At the end of the Age of Enlightenment, in 1783, the chemist Pieter Jan Minckelers discovered the suitability of coal gas for lighting. In the nineteenth century, at the instigation of Pope Leo XIII, KU Leuven became an important centre of Thomist philosophy.

We’ve had so much fun at the European Finals of TiE International StartUp Competition and the time has come for us to announce the winners!!!   Our judges were looking for an inspiring teams and they certainly had a very hard time!   It was amazing to see how the students were seizing the opportunity to get the best advices.   This was a friendly “Entrepreneurship focused Event” and it was so easy to do it with you!  As the participants, you are the focus of our plans!

Le mal des startups belges

Le mal des startups belges | Social Entrepreneurship | Scoop.it
l’incapacité start-uppeuriale des porteurs de projet

En réalité, la plupart des explications habituellement fournies pour expliquer la détresse de notre « tech économie » sont accessoires, voire fallacieuses. Elles masquent une réalité moins évidente mais bien plus prégnante : l’incapacité start-uppeuriale, voire tout simplement l’insuffisance entrepreneuriale, des porteurs de projet.
Par exemple, La « sous-capitalisation des jeunes pousses digitales » s’explique-t-elle réellement par « une insuffisance du système des business angels pour soutenir certains types de projets »? Ou encore « parce que des investisseurs trouvant notre marché trop petit, trop divisé, trop compliqué pensent que le jeu n’en vaut pas la chandelle » ?
Ne serait-ce pas plutôt parce que les fondateurs ne savent tout simplement ni dénicher ni ensuite vendre leur projet aux apporteurs de capitaux privés ? Ne devrait-on pas souligner les biais inconscients, les préjugés sur les investisseurs, la méconnaissance du marché des capitaux, ou plus simplement le manque de culture financière des fondateurs ? Bon nombre de capitaux-risqueurs belges se plaignent de l’incohérence entre les montants quémandés par les porteurs de projet et les return (TRI) qui leur sont proposés en échange, et soulignent également l’incapacité des primo entrepreneurs à comprendre le lien de cause à effet, la nécessaire proportionnalité, entre le montant demandé et le pourcentage du capital-actions cédé en échange, etc.

N’importe quelle start-up belge peut solliciter The Faktory. En ce compris donc, celles qui ne sont pas hébergées dans son accélérateur.

The Faktory jouera les premiers relais. Une analyse des demandes sera faite, notamment en termes de niveau de maturité du développement, de nature du besoin, ce qui permettra de filtrer et d’orienter les porteurs de projet et développeurs vers la ressource adéquate chez Sigfox.
