Strengthen the Belgian entrepreneurial eco system
BEyond, an Initiative by the Pulse Foundation aims to turn promising Belgian tech scale-ups into genuine players in the global market. It is a philanthropic initiative that depends on the solidarity of a broad network of leading Belgian entrepreneurs and world-renowned entrepreneurial families.
BEyond is for entrepreneurs by entrepreneurs. Is part of a solidarity between the different components of the entrepreneurial ecosystem of our country with, as a common objective, to contribute to a dynamic and united society and the future of a prosperous Belgium.
To quote from Itinera (Think Tank report, June 2017) we need the “exemplary function of successful entrepreneurs to boost the ambition of scale-ups”. But also for our economy: “where it’s not the size of the business that is crucial, but the extent to which scale-ups grow rapidly.”
The Team that Thinks BEyond
Under the umbrella of Pulse Foundation, Fonds Baillet-Latour, Agoria, EY, DataScouts, and Universem mobilise and brings experience, expertise and network to accelerate the growth of promising scaleups.
Names such as Grégoire de Streel, Rodolphe de Hemptinne, Benny Sintobin, Sébastien Deletaille, Bernard Delvaux and Duco Sickinghe are already committed to BEyond.
Our goal is to co-create a community of selected scale-ups, top-profile mentors, members of an advisory board and partner organisations which develop in the course of time a community that enriches the Belgian ecosystem and is willing to meet, learn and move forward.
