VIDEO: MBA Entrepreneur | Michel Poucet, Vlerick Business School

We spoke to Michel Poucet, Vlerick Business School MBA entrepreneur, founder of space construction company Lift Me Off, who reveals how one MBA project started everything

Tue Jan 14 2020


For MBA entrepreneur Michel Poucet, the phrase 'the sky's the limit' really has no meaning. His business Lift Me Off is developing products that could one day be operating in space, with plan for launch in 2020. 

Lift Me Off is launching a vehicle for in-orbit transportation, that can mend or move satellites, as well as dispose of them. It's essentially an intergalactic repairs truck. 

If this all sounds simple enough, Michel highlights that learning never stops. And like with most other businesses, the customer is always right.  

We spoke to Michel about what inspired his startup idea, how the MBA forged his career path, and what's set to happen next for Lift Me Off. 


Student Reviews

Vlerick Business School




Great career services and quality of teaching

I believe that it is one of the top European universities in the business area. It is very career-oriented. It is focused in the Benelux area. One bad thing is that as a business school it doesn't offer masters in other areas and generally it doesn’t offer a bachelor's degree.




On Campus

Study in the center of the city!!

The program is good with 10 months of duration, professors being well experienced and versatile backgrounds. Focus on careers of MBA students is less and more priority is given towards a higher number of Master's (less experienced) students. All the focus is kept on networking but no active event by school for MBA students to provide job opportunities. The Hybrid set-up for students is really good which helps in attending classes in case of some emergency or illness. Should focus on MBA students as equal as other master's students for all the activities along with classes.
