  • Leen Gorissen

    Keynote / Leen Gorissen - Natural Intelligence (in Dutch)

    Despite endless changes, disturbances and cosmic collisions, nature has survived these past 3,8 billion years. Nature knows how things work, and which elements benefit to the future of our life at planet earth. What if we would borrow insights from this 'Natural Intelligence', and use them to innovate quickly? Leen Gorissen, Doctor in Biology, shares insights on the latest innovate insights from biology. She will explain why 'Natural Intelligence' should be leading business innovation, and not 'Artificial Intelligence'.
  • Etienne Moens

    Keynote / Etienne Moens - Personal financial intelligence (in Dutch)

    Despite the fact that finances and financial aspects play an important role in our lives, we barely learn about them in our daily life and education. Are we 'financially illiterate'? In this workshop Etienne Moens will explain a number of practical mechanisms that are understandable, recognisable and applicable for all. Subscriptions will soon be opened.

In 1930, the editorial offices of Dagblad Vooruit moved into the original building. Behind it was the printing press "Het Licht", where the socialist newspaper was printed. Today, this art deco monument with a unique design has been repurposed as the home of the Upgrade Academy as well as Ghent company Nexxworks.

Visitors will enjoy the ultimate customer experience thanks to the interplay between authentically renovated spaces and future-proof technology. The entire interior design was conceived and executed by Upgrade Estate's creative team.
