1/ My most important project for the moment is:
 
Startups.be
This non profit organization was founded by a number of experienced (technology) entrepreneurs such as Jurgen Ingels, Alain Heureux, Bart Becks, Peter Hinssen, Antoine Perdaens, Sylvie Irzi, e.a. to unite all of the startup supporting actors in Belgium (coaching & training, funding, incubators & accelerators, startup experts, etc.). We can already count on active contribution from 50+ member organizations from totally different backgrounds. Our main goals are:
 - to provide tech entrepreneurs with easy & qualitative access to supporting instruments, activities & organizations
 - to stimulate collaboration & cross fertilization between the different startup supporting actors
 - to develop a consolidated international outreach program for tech entrepreneurs, in collaboration with and uniting the networks & expertise of the different regional entrepreneurial and import/export regions as well as all of our members

2/ The person, the creation, the project that has inspired me lately is:
 
José Zurstrassen - founder of the Keytrade bank, MyMicroInvest & Mondial Telecom - José is someone who can see beyond the boundaries of today's world and make paradigm shifts happen.

3/ The factor I believe crucial for an idea/project/business to spread is:
 
Collaboration, customer centric, co-creation

4/ My favorite place in the world is:
 
Home

5/ Before I die I want to:
 
See my children grow up in a world that allows them to grasp chances, embrace change and develop opportunities
