Start it @KBC
In October 2017, more than 160 startups shared their innovative business ideas in an attempt to
overwhelm the jury and become part of Belgium’s biggest start-up community. After a stressy pitchday
in Antwerp, Smoothy — together with 40 other amazing startups — was selected to join the Start it
@KBC accelerator program.
Student-entrepreneur of the year
Every year, self-employment organisation Unizo organises a contest for the title of best
student-entrepreneur of the year. In order to win this title you have to convince a professional
jury of your entrepreneurial skills and the strength of your startup. Two years in a row, I came out
as the best student-entrepreneur of Limburg during the provincial selections. In the national final I
made it respectively to the fourth and third place.
