The future won’t wait, so why should you?
It were those words that welcomed more than 2.500 tech and innovation lovers to Future Entrepreneurship on the 20th and 21st of April 2022. The Waagnatie in Antwerp was once again the gateway to the future, where students and professionals came together for two days filled with innovation and inspiration.
Inspiring young minds to help shape the future. It is one of the goals Future Entrepreneurship has as its basis, and that is exactly what it did. It combined talks from groundbreaking entrepreneurs with the opportunity to network with like-minded people. All while discovering the newest innovations and businesses that will change the world. From big players in the corporate world, like Accenture, Semetis, Samsung, DPG Media, and De Cronos Groep to the City of Antwerp and Port of Antwerp Bruges, to start-ups in all kinds of sectors. They all had their own booth at the Future Fair, so every futurist had the chance to discover what it is they do, and whether they would fit in as the newest colleague or intern.
While every aspect of the event was as important and inspiring as the next, there was one part that stood out and highlighted both evenings. The talks are on the main stage of FE22. Just like there was a wide variety of companies present at the Future Fair, the topics discussed were just as diverse; from digital transformations in the food industry to the future of media, the metaverse, and revolutions in mobility. The experts talking about these topics all had one thing in common: their passion for innovation. And it showed. They talked about what it is they do, how they got to where they are today and everything in between. We’re sure the next game-changers were there at FE22 and inflamed their own passion even further.
Since the event is all about (student-) entrepreneurship, it was a must to give them a voice as well. During the ‘Broadcast from the Future’, a live-streamed show at the Future Fair, they got the opportunity to share their entrepreneurial stories and tips to change the playing field with everyone there and at home.
