EYnovation, the startup program powered by EY, is working with Startups.be towards a common goal: to help make dreams come true for the entrepreneurs in Belgium.

Karen Boers, Managing Director at Startups.be and Wouter Desmet, Partner at EY Subsidia, share their views on the ecosystem and the highlights of this partnership.

Young leaders of technology companies often need to quickly conquer international markets. Therefore, it is crucial for them to find the right people, the right investors and the essential networking organizations as soon as possible . A few years ago, the Belgian incubators, accelerators, networks and investors were dispersed and disconnected. Now it is different: Startups.be grouped them all in one single platform, a one-stop-shop for entrepreneurs.

Through our package EYnovation we offer promising starters access to our extensive international network, which includes many key game-changers and decision-makers in the business. It is precisely these people who are not easily accessible for the entrepreneurs. We can connect them directly. We also organise initiatives such as Launchpad sessions where starters have the opportunity to present their ideas to the CEOs of renowned companies.
