1/My most important project for the moment is:
Professionally, I'm currently working on starting an exciting new company ... which I sadly can't say much about at this point. In life, my most important project for the moment is trying to raise our 2.5-year old son to the best of my abilities.

2/The person, the creation, the project that has inspired me lately is :
This may sound a little cheesy, but I get inspiration from pretty much everyone I encounter and everything I experience in any given day. I'm continually trying to improve my writing, so I read a heck of a lot every single day, and I'm always trying to find great writers I can learn from.

3/The 3 factors I believe crucial for an idea/project/business to spread are:
- Drive. Some call this passion, but I believe 'drive' is a better word to describe what it takes to go from idea to project to startup to growing business.
- Focus. Avoiding as many distractions as possible and being able to often simply say 'no' tends to take you a long way.
- Being open to feedback. My strong belief is that you can't listen enough to the advice you get - often for free - from your users, customers, partners, employees and whatnot. 

 4/My favorite place in the world is:
Home, which is wherever my wife and son are.

5/Before I die I want to:
Live :)

6/Are you coming to TEDxBrussels this year?
Yes

7/Why?
Because I was kindly invited to co-host the event, because I know and admire the organizers, and because I very much enjoyed attending TEDxBrussels last year.
