Meet Bart Van der Roost, music and information technology aficionado turned entrepreneur. And we’re happy he decided to do so! Bart is CEO of neoScores, one of the most praised Belgian start-ups which created ‘the iTunes of Sheet Music’, a digital alternative to sheet music. Combining his passion for music with entrepreneurship, Bart’s endeavors have been recognized nationally and worldwide: only a few months after founding the start-up, it was announced to be the most promising start-up of 2013 by the Flemish Chamber of Commerce, and a year after, Start-up Nationals Summit chose it as the world’s second most promising start-up. Come listen to how Bart has connected the world of art and music to the world of entrepreneurship and learn from those who can and do!
