What our participants are saying

The world should not be male or female. We have to try to find a balance. The input of women entrepreneurs through the Women in Tech program can ultimately lead to a better balance and provide new perspectives.

Rebekka Van Acker (OQuila)

The start-up world is still a man's world, so it's nice to meet like-minded women thanks to Women in Tech. Everyone is at a different stage of their entrepreneurial journey, so we learn a lot from each other.

Zoë Vets (Live The World)

Male and female entrepreneurs often approach things in very different ways. Thanks to the Women in Tech program, I can now appreciate the balance between my male co-founders and myself, and I'm convinced that we complement each other perfectly.

That is why the Agency for Innovation and Enterprise (VLAIO) wants to set up projects that encourage, support or guide entrepreneurs in their entrepreneurial endeavors. Together with the VLAIO partners, we are bundling our strengths and resources. Start it Accelerate Women in Tech is part of a network of initiatives that entrepreneurs can use to thrive. Together for #strongentrepreneurship.
