Special Event: HortiHeroes Arena: Shoot for the Moon

October 11, 2018, 16:30 - 18:00


Thursday, 11 October, the HortiHeroes Arena will be organized at Venture Café Rotterdam. This time the Heroes focus is: ‘Shoot for the moon’, a mindset necessary for business innovation and success. HortiHeroes is a startup, talent development and innovation platform for the Food & Flower Industry. We connect companies, knowledge institutes, startups and industry experts with each other and introduce these parties with new technology and the latest innovations from within and also outside the sector. Meet with our community during drinks and get inspired by these entrepreneurs.

Ron Simpson, one of the founders of The Avocado Show, tells his astounding story on the becoming of The Avocado Show even before the restaurant was opened yet. A brilliant masterpiece of social media marketing combined with their dream and the great idea of the restaurant, which led to more than 100.000 followers on social, more than 500.000 views of their photo material, news items in more than 60 countries and requests for franchising, before the restaurant was really up and running in a matter of just days.

Our own Rotterdam Business Woman 2018, Janne Vereijken (founder Spring Company), explains how to move people to radical or disruptive change with inspiring examples. According to her, moonshot thinking is essential to make innovation a part of your company DNA.

You are invited to this event organised by a unique cooperation between HortiHeroes, CIC Rotterdam and Venture Café, the network defining the future of the Rotterdam region. Be there to share, learn and grow towards success!
