New technologies such as Blockchain, machine learning or 3D printing mark the beginning of a new wave of creative destruction and renewal, with start-ups often in the vanguard. Ever more graduates and professionals demand self-fulfilment and autonomy from the corporate hierarchies, dress codes or office hours. Ever more corporations tap into the creativity of start-ups, which are free of regulations, strict rules, suits and ties. Heads, people, personalities seem to be the quintessence of creativity and start-up success. But what talents are truly suited for founding and growing a start-up? Is attitude more important than skills? How do you find the right team? Do drinks at the bar oust CVs and application letters? Is there a breaking point for a (non-) corporate culture? How can start-ups win in the war for talent?

8.00-10.00 pm Recruiting and networking marketplace, Supporters Lounge, Start-up Job board, Social Media Lounge, Food Corner and more
