Some things are more important than money, but if you want to take your startup to the next level, you need as much 'fuel' as you can get. With that in mind, we're organizing fundraising workshops all over Belgium in the next few months. Join us and become an expert!

Since 2014, the fundraising environment in Belgium has been steadily improving, yet at Startups.be we know that many startups still struggle to figure out how to address and attract investors while raising funds. From the very beginning we gear towards helping entrepreneurs in solving pratical problems they may face while kicking off or scaling their business. Fundraising is definitely one of the top challenges!

In 2017, we, together with our partners, will organize workshops in Brussels, Flanders and Wallonia addressing the essential topics of fundraising, startup valuation, investor mindset, metrics and many more. These workshops are for startups willing to attract VCs or business angels. We will dive into the specifics of the Belgian market and give a "behind the scene" perspective to built lasting and profitable relations with investors – so, as a result, startups can set up their fundraising for success!


Brussels is a genuine hub for Belgian startups and scaleups we are heading to with our workshops organized in partnership with impulse.brussels. Our aim is to help startups that want to raise a first «institutional» round (€500+k). To do so, we’ll organise 8 workshops (+/- 1 every 3 weeks) in Brussels to help entrepreneurs better understand how fundraising works, how VCs think, and how to best prepare for meeting them.
