Where does the program take place?

Discover our locations

  • Since 2020, we organize our program partly physically, partly virtually. Important moments at the beginning and end of the program are organized physically and we also provide sufficient (physical) networking opportunities throughout the program. The physical events take place alternately over our different physical locations.
  • We have physical locations in Antwerp, Ghent and Brussels at Meetdistrict.
  • Start-ups in our program get access to flex office space, meeting rooms and all other facilities

Birdhouse Antwerp

Located around the corner from Antwerp-Berchem Station, this coworking space is easily accessible by public transport. Do you prefer to come by car? The exit of the Antwerp Ring is also next door!

Besides the practical aspect, this coworking space is perfect for working and networking. As icing on the cake, it has a lunch spot and a bar to end the working week on a positive note.
