We live in a world that feels like it’s constantly on the brink: of scientific breakthrough, of technological dystopia, of societal upheaval. It’s never been more crucial that we make the most of art & culture to inform our innovation & design. We have to dare to take the future in a brand new direction. But how exactly do you create crossovers and disrupt business as usual as a small company or an entrepreneur?

We invite you to find out in an informal setting, with an internationally-renowned speaker and some beers and bites! On Monday 24 June De Hoorn and Leuven MindGate offer the finale to the successful Koffie/Klets series of 2018 with the launch of a new series: Mindblowers.

For one day only, Stephanie Alys (UK) – recipient of the 2018 Veuve Clicquot Business Woman Award – will be in Leuven to inspire entrepreneurs and driven venturers. She’ll draw on her experience of launching one of the most disruptive sextech companies to challenge existing notions of ‘taboo’, and of ‘progress’, advocating for positive, purpose-driven innovation.

Come hear Stephanie’s mindblowing talk, ask questions, network with fellow creative minds, and enjoy a fun and relaxed atmosphere with delicious drinks and snacks. Thanks to financial support from Smart Hub Vlaams-Brabant, you get in the door for FREE!
