As a member of the investment committee of the Ark Angel Fund, he evaluates new venture ideas on a daily basis and has experience with the obstacles in the new venture financing process. Miguel Meuleman has recently also been involved in the launch of The Entrepreneurial Buyout Platform at Vlerick Business School. A new business can be established from scratch or acquired in some way or another through a buyout. In an entrepreneurial buyout an entrepreneurial individual or team pool their own money together with investor money to buy shares in the company from its current owners to create a new independent entity with the main goal to explore entrepreneurial initiative in order to increase efficiency and achieve growth. The Entrepreneurial Buyout Platform wants to promote acquisitions to individuals seeking entrepreneurial opportunities by creating awareness and developing and spreading state-of-the-art knowledge on the processes underlying successful entrepreneurial buyouts.
