Join2Grow, an interactive network for European entrepreneurs


Brussels / Utrecht, 16 February 2007

Today Fortis launches Join2Grow (, an electronic platform enabling European entrepreneurs to meet and exchange opinions and tips.
Join2Grow is dedicated to all categories of business manager, from starters to experienced people, from medium-sized company owners to large business managers. The website has three main elements:
- The survey ‘Who is today’s European entrepreneur?’, which set out to identify European entrepreneurs’ profile and financial needs. It was conducted by Fortis in collaboration with TNS Sofres, the leading French marketing and opinion research organisation, and the management consulting firm McKinsey & Co. The results are available on the website and will undoubtedly be food for thought for all managers.
- An interactive network based on the MySpace concept, where subscribers can communicate freely with fellow businesspeople and exchange useful information. The profile of each active website member shows the business sector they come from, their hobbies and their business objectives.
- A ‘magazine’ section with audio and video podcasts, where European business owners talk about their professional experience and the challenges they have faced.
Join2Grow: a customised tool for entrepreneurs
Join2Grow – a Web 2.0 tool – will enable entrepreneurs to quickly create a European social network of contacts sharing the same business concerns. They will be able to exchange tips and to establish new business relations worldwide. Fortis is strongly backing this new tool, which will give European businesspeople the opportunity to be part of a strong, continent-wide community of modern and active entrepreneurs who want to take their business life to another level.
