Board of directors and board of advisors for startups and scale-ups


Are you interested in the exciting world of startups and scale-ups ? 

Many are looking for professionals that can assist them, as members of their board of directors or of their advisory board. 

During this workshop, you’ll learn more about the specific challenges these companies face, the skills they are looking for in a board member, and the dynamics that are at play. These can be quite different from what you are used to.


Women on Board member Nathalie De Ceulaer has ample experience with the startup ecosystem as a mentor and coach, (advisory) board member, CFO and risk manager at venture capital investment fund. Her book “What the Fund”, on fund raising for growing companies, came out a few months ago. Kathleen Granje was co-founder of Cashforce, and will share her experience on advisory boards, seen from both sides: as an entrepreneur benefitting from an advisory board, and as a professional sitting on the advisory board of other companies. 


Women on Board is partnering with The Birdhouse for this event. The Birdhouse is an accelerator, supported by Belfius. They help selected startups grow, offering them office space, mentoring, training and access to financing. They are welcoming us for this workshop in their hub in Ghent, where we’ll have the opportunity to smell the startup spirit and mingle with some of the startups-in-residence.

Time: 17h- 20h with Networking drink
