Piet Verhoeve

Smart collaboration is in Piet Verhoeve’s DNA. He gained experience from both the corporate side as CTO of Televic and from the academic side as Director ICON at iMinds/imec. That experience was bundled in the book Win-Winnovation, which was awarded the best book in the “Learn & Development” category. In 2018 he launched the successful co-creation hub Hangar K in Kortrijk and founded his own company Origanius that helps organizations to innovate and grow faster through smart collaboration. Last year he kickstarted the new crossover ecosystem flanders.healthTech that combines biotechnology, digital technologies and medical technologies in flanders.
Piet Verhoeve, after his engineering studies at the KU Leuven, obtained a PhD at Ghent University, where he gained a lot of experience in European projects. Piet is a guest professor at Ghent University. In his scarce spare time, he supports all kinds of initiatives that make young people enthusiastic about technical or scientific studies (STEM, Coderdojo).
