Finding the right location

Business centers and incubators in Flanders

Flanders has dozens of business centers and incubators, spread over its 5 provinces. These centers are excellent locations to start and grow your company, and they offer several kinds of facilities for rent: business offices, semi-industrial units or storage rooms. Some of these business centers also provide specific support services, such as a general reception, telephone services, a secretariat, meeting room facilities, etc. Others only offer rooms for rent. In comparison to the conventional real estate market (with rigid contracts), these centers are characterized by their flexibility: you can rent for a short period, end the tenancy on short notice or easily move to a larger or smaller unit if necessary.

Some of these centers – the so-called Innovation & Incubation Centers – are intended only for companies specialized in innovation & research.

To facilitate your search, Flanders Innovation & Entrepreneurship has published a useful sitemap of these business centers per province. By visiting the individual websites, you will find out more about the availability and the services offered by each center.
