Ever since he was little, Philippe Jans (MBA, 2010) dreamt of becoming an engineer. As professional freedom is very important to Philippe, he quickly decided to start his own company. So, in 2011 he founded Biolectric that produces biogas as a new source of energy for farms.
Vlerick Business School helped Philippe in his transition from solely being a technical engineer towards being an entrepreneur with a technical background. Thanks to the specific format / nature of the Executive MBA programme, he enjoyed the opportunity to combine studying and working.
Philippe Jans: “I have a lot of fond memories of my time at Vlerick: classmates, lessons … All in a very challenging atmosphere, while still being light enough to remain a pleasant experience.”
As there are few certainties in life Philippe has one very important piece of advice for aspiring entrepreneurs: “The right time to start realising your dreams is today!”
