Who is Bert Van Wassenhove?
Bert is a digital expert in heart and soul, and is a born start-up coach. He refers to himself as a “Publisher of Companies” and, as an entrepreneur, blogger, publicist, speaker and startup mentor, is passionate about the question: how can entrepreneurship help our economy to flourish? He is the co-founder of THINK with people, an initiative that supports entrepreneurs, The CoFoundry, a seed fund for expanding companies, and Heaven Can Wait, an incubator for creative talent.
His passion for innovation and digital media has led to a rich career in the consultancy world. But his knowledge is also appreciated outside the sector, because he inspires the next generation of managers as guest lecturer at institutions such as the EMS Management School. His outspoken vision on digital communication has also resulted in a book titled Een digitaal marketingplan in 100 dagen (A digital marketing plan in 100 days).
Bert is the man I’ve always wanted to meet: intelligent, funny, charming and unassuming. He is one of the 'rock stars’ of the Belgian consultancy world and represents everything that is not clichéd in consultancy.
