The new imec.istart Founders Circle event on March 17, 2020 promises to feed all your senses. We kick off with an inspiring talk. Afterwards, it is time to celebrate: Not only will you have the chance to welcome our newest selection (our N00bs;) of imec.istart’ers, but imec.istart will also put our graduating founders of Spring 2019 in the spotlight for working hard to achieve their goals. Buddies and newbies are matched, and of course: no celebration without food and drinks!

Food waste prevention initiative

!! Unfortunately, last year tons of food were wasted due to a high number of no-shows. Therefore, from 2020 onwards, we work with no-show fees: if you register, we assume that you will come:) If you have to cancel, please send your cancellation to Evelyne, do so at least a week in advance; otherwise: a no-show fee of €30,- will be charged. Hope you will support our waste-prevention plan:)!
