Event Details: 

  • Date: 26th January 2024
  • Time: 10:30 – 13:00
  • Location: SilverSquare, Square de Meeûs 35, 1000 Brussels



Join us on 26 January 2024, for an enriching discussion centered around crowdfunding and sustainable social entrepreneurship. 

The discussion will outline best practices and ideas to boost financial and technical literacy in alternative finance. The knowledge, digital tools, and skills needed for successful crowdfunding campaigns are crucial, especially considering the general lack of technical and financial literacy. To broaden the impact of alternative financing, it must be accessible to entrepreneurs with varying skill levels. Discover effective ways to raise funds for projects and business ideas, with a special focus on sustainability and positive social initiatives. Don’t miss the chance to enhance your crowdfunding expertise and contribute to a more inclusive financial landscape!

Register today here to join the conversation and contribute to preparing for a positive impact in the digital era.
