Do you have a great idea that can persuade the most demanding investors? Do you want to raise awareness around your brand, or do you dream of winning the hearts of the Belgian television viewers? This could be your chance, because VIER is looking for Flemish entrepreneurs who want to participate in a brand new idea contest!

Agentschap Innoveren & Ondernemen (VLAIO) and its partners Flanders DC, Voka and UNIZO recently launched a new campaign, 'Ondernemers voor iedereen', to put a spotlight on Flemish entrepreneurs and to show that anybody can be an entrepreneur.

One of the elements in that campaign is a brand-new television show called 'Voor de Leeuwen' (‘For the Lions’) on VIER. The show brings together young and experienced entrepreneurs, who get the chance to pitch their innovative idea to 5 successful businessmen, with the goal of persuading them to invest in their idea.


'Voor de Leeuwen' promises one big adventure for the selected entrepreneurs, with plenty of keynotes, fireside chats, the thrill of the idea contest and some great rewards.

The organizers want the show to serve as a new step in the entrepreneurial career of the participants, certainly if they want to launch a product or an idea. As for experienced entrepreneurs, they will get the chance to pave the way for their business growth and expansion.
