Entrepreneurship in Belgium

ESA-Program-14

Belgium is a small but essential country for the European economy. Home of the headquarters of the EU and a reference for some industrial sectors like food (beer, chocolate, margarine), the country benefits from a privileged location and an excellent transportation network that allows it to import raw materials to be manufactured and exported. This has allowed Belgium to develop a strong entrepreneurial system and it is an ideal setting to establish connections and develop new projects. This program, in collaboration with Liege and Mons universities, offers the support for students to learn about entrepreneurship, Belgium culture, and develop and present their own projects to local companies.
