BeTech is a bottom-up, entrepreneur-driven movement, boosting a strong knowledge, cohesion and network effect to nurture the entrepreneurial mindset in Belgium.

Belgium has the potential to become an even stronger nation of builders. To enable this it’s crucial to leverage our unique emerging ecosystem by supporting the next generation(s) of entrepreneurs.

BeTech promotes a strong Belgian by entrepreneurs/for entrepreneurs movement by facilitating a strong and active network and sharing experiences between peers.

The BeTech movement

To build a stronger entrepreneur-driven climate, BeTech is on a mission to help entrepreneurs grow to their full potential and beyond!

BeTech is built upon 3 pillars:

  1. Be Smart — Share knowledge and experience with entrepreneurs
  2. Be Proud — Take credit and act as true builders
  3. Be Global — Reach out and grow internationally

The BeTech movement is all about implementing the “pay it forward” mentality by and for Belgian tech entrepreneurs, to help other entrepreneurs move forward. BeTech actions are always bottom-up, people-centric and focused on entrepreneurs.
