The UNISK League has united around a common quest: to turn the business world upside down by placing people back at its center.
Tutu is French (yes… we do accept everyone at UNISK). She arrived in the flat country to work as a consultant in big pharmaceutical companies (which we won’t mention but that everyone knows). After a few years of experience as a quality and compliance engineer, she decided to give up everything to look for more purpose in her life. Very keen on environmental issues, she went volunteering in Indonesia for a reforestation project.
She developed then a taste for social and sustainable entrepreneurship and decided to follow a training course to explore these themes. Not believing that life is made of chances, it is during that training that she met Nunu, who has since then become her accomplice in entrepreneurial crime. For a while, she satisfied her hunger for challenges (or just her hunger) with a mission in an e-commerce startup in the organic food sector, before fully transforming herself into a UNISK unicorn.
Tutu does not only sum up in a career path! She is a volleyball player, she loves to travel, loves to eat (at any time!), reads by the beach (preferably) and can let her geek side go wild during her spare time. She is also a mega fan of process implementation 😉
Nunu was born in Portugal and made Belgium her adopted country. Very early on (as early as her teenage years), she was attracted by challenges and the excitement of organizing events to unite people around a common goal. Organizer of summer camps for children (blending in with her mini-height), active in youth movements, volunteer in associations … She took the path of entrepreneurship during her studies, taking up the challenge of professionalizing a non-profit organization. The mission ? Organizing events for the youth at the end of secondary school to raise awareness about social and humanitarian entrepreneurship.
With this amazing human experience in the non-profit sector, she turned to the dark side of the force (we’re joking) : From Event Manager to Production Director in the private sector, to managing a Belgian fashion startup, or launching a big fundraising event for a large NGO, and even managing a coworking space, … Lots of challenges!
Oh yes ! She also loves playing field hockey and tennis, sailing, sharing nice moments around a good meal (doesn’t eat as much as Tutu, only Pasteis de Nata), and sometimes she lets her pyromaniac side free to organize barbecues …
UNISK is the story of a crazy dream that was living inside Nunu’s head: how to reveal people’s unique talents in a fun and playful way? How about fun challenges instead of stressful and rigid interviews? And even crazier, why not take the opportunity to do it collectively? When Nunu and Tutu’s paths crossed, it sparked. Nunu talked to Tutu about his idea. Enthusiastic, she boarded the ship. They decided to join a startup accelerator. Their application was selected and UNISK was born… within Coopcity.
