Unlock your innovation potential

in co-creation with scale-ups Register for our kick-off event

67% of corporates feel that their company is too slow to innovate.

Corporates are not organized to manage today’s disruption.  They feel they’re too slow to act on the wave of external factors and disruptive competitors, despite of the in-house intelligence, know-how and budget. 

45% of start-ups feel the need of getting access to larger (industry) networks.

They are scaling up and eager to expand their innovation potential in co-creation with established companies.

That’s where we step in. 

There is an urgent need for more smarter collaboration between corporates & scale-ups in the Flemish ecosystem. Netwerk Ondernemen wants to build these bridges, to unlock your innovation potential.

Why Netwerk Ondernemen as your innovation partner?

✨  MAGIC

We know the magic. Netwerk Ondernemen knows the ins and outs, the pitfalls and successes of scale-ups. Our secret sauce? Passion for entrepreneurs! 

🏅 MATCHMAKER

Thanks to our strong network and years of experience in matching entrepreneurs, we know what works – and what doesn’t – to connect your innovation project with the perfect scale-up. 

🚀 LESS TALKING, MORE DOING

We do things the start-up way: less talking, more doing. Our hands-on mentality brings your projects in no time from scoping to running. 

⚔️ IT’S A WIN-WIN

Collaboration between corporates & scale-ups is a win-win situation. Not only for you: the whole Flemish ecosystem could benefit from more successful innovation projects. It’s the lifelong vision of Netwerk Ondernemen.
