Flanders Innovation & Entrepreneurship
The agency Flanders Innovation & Entrepreneurship is the contact point for entrepreneurs in Flanders. We encourage and support innovation and entrepreneurship, and contribute to a favourable business climate.
We do this in close collaboration with local actors and supported by our international commitments in EUREKA, E.E.N. and H2020.
We focus on:
- Stimulating growth and innovation
We support businesses through grants so they continue to grow, transform and innovate. Examples include the SME growth subsidy, SME innovation- and R&D-projects.
- Promoting entrepreneurship
We work together with strong partners that assist SMEs through start, growth and takeover. We also encourage networking focused on growth companies.
- Supporting clusters
We support organisations that catalyse cooperation and dynamics within a group of enterprises and knowledge institutions.
- Improving environmental factors
We facilitate the development of industrial areas.
By being a one-stop-shop, we built a bridge towards stronger entrepreneurship.
In numbers (2016):
- 369 employees
- 30 million euro operating resources
- 513 million euro for grants
