NEW in 2018: Exclusive Concept
for This is IT Award & Contest
The purpose of the 'This is IT' contest is to stimulate the entrepreneurial mindset of young IT & Digital graduates and to help them connecting with experienced entrepreneurs.
ICT Graduates of Belgian universities and colleges will have the opportunity to send in their great entrepreneurial idea. A jury of 5 companies and a specialised media partner, Datanews, will choose the best ideas.
The winners get the unique opportunity to fly to Silicon Valley for a very intense programme of personal coaching and networking opportunities, meet experienced ICT & Digital entrepreneurs, share their dreams and get the support to realise them. On top of that they will share their experiences with the ICT & Digital community in Datanews.
The Award Ceremony will be an exclusive event - invitation only - at the famous Hertog Jan *** restaurant on October 18th. As Hertog Jan announced that 2018 will be their final year, this adds up to the unique experience you can be a part of! Become a partner or join the contest to get the change of participating in this high-class networking event.
Join us in our mission to inspire young people to start with ICT studies and help them to meet fantastic people to realise their entrepreneurial ideas.
