Founded in 1991, Cronos Groep has evolved from a one-man business to a large group of companies with 3,500 employees. The group was originally founded by and for technology people for the express purpose of helping those people grow as far as their ambitions reached, even if that meant starting for themselves.
Since then, this mission statement has been expanded and the group enriched with people from the creative sector who are able to communicate well with the ‘business people’ yet are able to speak with the Cronos IT staff at their own level, resulting in the most creative and technologically optimal solution for customers.
The group is also continuously looking for creative, driven people and is always willing to listen to innovative ideas from potential entrepreneurs.
The Cronos Groep offers young entrepreneurs opportunities to grow their creative ideas into a healthy company. The group coaches start-ups from A to Z and also provides financial support, under the watchful eye of commercial director Dirk Deroost. Their link with sports? They sponsor not only the Ten Miles and the Port of Antwerp Giants. Source.
Cronos Groep is synonymous with innovative entrepreneurship. Since the group began in 1991 Cronos has been actively involved in the start-up of more than 200 companies.
The group also provides a state-of-the-art incubation environment and works with the start-ups on acceleration programmes.
Think With People provides low threshold yet very concrete support for potential founders who still need some help with their business case, management team or organization. Think With People provides completely free assistance, with no strings attached, yet has access to the resources of the entire Cronos Groep.
The Cronos Combinator not only provides early-stage funding in cooperation with investment partners but also all the necessary assistance for start-ups.
The Combinator also organizes an annual three-month summer school for potential entrepreneurs and provides a one-year training programme for potential entrepreneurs.
Cronos Groep has a very active incubation environment, provides supportive acceleration programmes and offers additional growth funding for those companies in the network that can and want to grow.
For example, Cronos Groep offers a no-obligation internal training programme in which you learn to think like an entrepreneur, without necessarily truly becoming an entrepreneur yourself. The people who complete the training programme and decide they want to become entrepreneurs can make their dream a reality. Does this sound like you? Then get in touch with Cronos Groep and – who knows? – maybe your entrepreneurial dreams will come true too!
