On 20 November 2013, KBC joined forces with Accenture, Flanders DC, the University of Antwerp, Cronos and Mobile Vikings for the launch of Start it @kbc, an incubator that provides budding entrepreneurs not only with a workspace, but also with support and advice to encourage sustainable growth. Apart from the existing partners, an agreement was also signed with Startups.be and iMinds, allowing the project to properly integrate in the Belgian budding tech community. It’s been a success: 58 start-ups have already signed up for a free workspace in Antwerp, customised training modules and one-to-one coaching by experts. Following the successful launch in Antwerp, Start it @kbc also set up shop at Corda Campus in Hasselt, and on 21 October 2014, the third site opened its doors in Louvain. Do you have an ambitious idea for an innovative and sustainable business? Start it @kbc gives you the opportunity to kick off in an enviable location – the KBC Tower in the heart of Antwerp, or in Hasselt or Louvain – completely financed by KBC. But there’s more! KBC also provides contacts and expertise, for example through information sessions and networking events. Start it @kbc is also a tight-knit community of budding entrepreneurs who can support one another if necessary.
