About this Event

Smart Up is about leaving an experience even smarter than before.

It’s our objective to level up smart women by creating an environment that enables all of them to experience knowledge that helps in realising their objectives.

Smart Up is a collective business experience built on knowledge sourced among women and facilitated by women.

The Smart Up Soirée is an intimate experience festival for women who want to be leaders in business.

During the Smart Up Soirée we seek to create a space in which we trigger personal development by collectively participating in new business rituals – rituals that connect.

We build new bridges, we see new opportunities, we aspire to smarten ourselves up through our creative businesses and a tenacious curiosity for creating spaces that help us build our ideas and ventures.

The Soirée is an intimate experience festival where women connect and over creative business intelligence. Our guests move from one business ritual into another and end their evening experience with music. During this first soirée we will introduce four intimate festival tracks:

'Meer geld in de handen van vrouwen' dat is waar ELFIN zich voor in zet. Want geld zorgt ervoor dat vrouwen autonome keuzes kunnen maken over werk, relaties en hun eigen toekomst. ELFIN zorgt ervoor dat vrouwen meer leren over geld en vermogen opbouwen. Inmiddels is ELFIN het grootste platform in NL en BE voor vrouwen over geld.


Mijn naam is Lieke, 37 jaar, ondernemer, moeder van 2 en chaotisch geordend. Ik heb een enorme liefde voor ondernemen en geld is mijn leukste hobby omdat het mij veel vrijheid heeft gegeven. Met ups and downs uiteraard en alles wat ik heb geleerd en nog steeds leer van experts geef ik door aan onze ELFIN community. Samen met Puck (mijn compagnon) zijn we op een missie om meer geld in de handen van vrouwen te krijgen.


Geld brengt veel emotie met zich mee. Voor de ene vrouw is het een noodzakelijk kwaad en de andere vrouw wordt er onrustig van en weer een andere geeft het gedachteloos uit.

Het gaat niet alleen over dat getal op je bankrekening, maar over je gedachten, over het managen en over geld voor je laten werken door middel van investeringen. En laat dat nu net zijn waar wij vrouwen ons over het algemeen onzeker over voelen. In deze masterclass dagen we je uit om geld een belangrijk onderdeel van je leven te maken en nemen we je stap voor stap door een 'geld-reis' waardoor je met meer zekerheid financiële beslissingen maakt die bij jou passen.

Because why new when there are already so many beautiful items out there?


Suzanne Kats is Chief Commercial Officer at The Next Closet – the leading secondhand fashion platform of the Benelux. She is also a lecturer at Fashion Universities, inspiring a next generation of fashion professionals to challenge the rules of the industry.
