Innovation Hub | About
Empowered by BNP Paribas Fortis, the Innovation Hub is an umbrella term for a variety of skills. It can serve as an active partner, a community, a knowledge center, a facilitator or a connector.
Any innovative company that is
- scaling up or
- on the verge of going global,
can already find these hubs in nine cities in Belgium (Brussels, Charleroi, Ghent, Hasselt, Leuven, Antwerp, Kortrijk, Liege and Namur).
These hubs are built around personal advisors who are trained in:
- detecting hidden potential,
- active listening,
- challenging ideas and
- business thinking.
Their mission is clear: 'help local heroes with innovative ventures turn into (inter)national stars'.
Next to teaming up with other partners of the ecosystem around innovative start-ups and scale-ups such as venture capitalists, business angels, universities, incubators, accountants... these highly motivated advisors can grant a red carpet access to adapted or specifically designed financial solutions and the global internal and external network of BNP Paribas Group.
No matter in which phase they are in, innovative companies are more than welcome to join the Innovation Hub community, get their network expanded and tap the knowledge, the resources and contacts they need to succeed.
