Coordination of Tech Tour Master Classes

Cresco Academy was in charge of coordinating the Tech Tour Master Classes, an intense preparation program for certain selected emerging and high-growth companies.  These Master Classes have covered i.a., legal and intellectual property matters, HR & operations, international growth and strategy counseling, financial planning and funding, marketing and product placing, and technology.

Cresco Master Classes

The first Cresco Master Class was directed to 50 emerging companies (start-ups) and dealt primarily with founder and employee retention and motivational aspects, such as the design of equity incentive programs and dynamic shareholding for founders.

The second Cresco Master Class was directed to 25 growth companies (post Series A) and dealt primarily with current trends in technology M&A, as well as the importance of intellectual property strategy, protection and enforcement, monetization methods and best of class commercial contracting principles. The Cresco experts continued with individual one-on-one workshops with each of the participants.

Jürgen Ingels, co-chairman of the Tech Tour Benelux, outlines the importance of this partnership and the Master Classes: “Once again, Cresco has done an incredibly good job at captivating the attention of these top entrepreneurs with their deep knowledge and expertise. The Cresco experts have provided these entrepreneurs with the best legal and strategic guidance available in the market, reflecting their position as thought leader on entrepreneurship.
