Say hello to Atradius, a partner of Matched! by JCI

A network event as Matched! by JCI (inspired by JCI Limburg), needs strong partnerships and so we put the spotlight on Atradius. Who is Atradius? 

Atradius Belgium is a company specialized in professionalizing the credit management of businesses by offering an appropriate solution from their range of credit insurance, guarantees, and international collection services.

Atradius provides protection against the risk of non-payment by customers and enables companies to expand their trading activities in a safe and reliable manner, both domestically and internationally. Atradius serves businesses of all sizes and sectors, helping them manage their credit risks and improve their cash flow. Discover them via, or on their socials. 


Why did they become a partner of Matched! ? 

We asked the same question to Patrick Van der Avert, Manager Corporate Communications & Marketing at Atradius:

“We strongly believe in connecting our brand with business initiatives and events, preferably where we can reach entrepreneurs in another/pleasant setting.

JCI develops young leaders and dares to focus on sharpening those leadership skills. In sponsoring an event as Matched! by JCI (with that unique character of 1 to 1 networking), we hope to spark some nice encounters between entrepreneurs.

In our Credit Managementworld, which is often seen as a challenging field by companies, we do have some experience with predictive models … we are curious to see how Thalento’s model puts people together.”

Looking for two active young citizens in Flanders and BWB!

During the second half of April 2023, we are going to launch Matched! by JCI (inspired by JCI Limburg ) on a national level – in the centre of Bruxelles.The ingredients of the Limburg edition are the foundation for a new national version:

  • It’s a business blind date in a great restaurant. Entrepreneur duo’s are being matched based on psychological and economical complementarity.
  • We are going to work with network partners of JCI like BNI, UNIZO, Voka…
  • Also, we will find partners that want to connect their company with the unique concept.
  • And last but not least: we aim at 300 entrepreneurs (150 duo’s) and let them do business, thanks to JCI.
  • As a part of the incoming board 2023, I’m here to tell you all: I can’t do this by myself. 
  • So we are looking for two active young citizens: 1 from JCI Vlaanderen and 1 from JCI Belgium Wallonie Bruxelles – BWB.

For JCI Vlaanderen, we have already 1 motivated JCI Member (thanks Delphine, JCI Waregem!), for JCI BWB we are looking for ‘the one’.

Do you meet the following criteria?

  • You are not a part of any regional of national board, so you can have a full focus on this project
  • The idea of Matched! by JCI makes you want to take on this challenge.
  • You have the time to invest and support this project on a level of partnerships, promotion/marketing, communications, hands-on tasks during the event and more?
  • Your vocabulary doesn’t contain words like ‘No, I’am tired, wanna watch tv now,…?

Are you the one we are searching for, to work together and make history? Send your motivation by e-mail ( of slides into my DM’s and let’s talk.
