Belgium is one of those rare ecosystems whose origin can be pinpointed in time. In 2014 a group of journalists and entrepreneurs published the Startup Manifesto, a list of principles for shaping a thriving ecosystem. The Manifesto influenced the thinking of Belgium’s Digital Minister, who is now the Prime Minister. Talk about impact!
Jean-Raymond Naveau took up the challenge of curating our first Belgium episode on the Ecosystem show. He brought us Beatrice de Mahieu, Julie Foulon, and Hugo Hanselmann for a great conversation from the perspective of the backbone organizations and advisors who take responsibility for the health of this ecosystem.
Enjoy the conversation!
