TO FULLY UNTAP THE POWER OF DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY, WE NEED COLLABORATION AS MUCH AS WE NEED INNOVATION.

Your company may have the best technology. Or the best team. Still, you won’t be able to solve the large economic and societal challenges all by yourself. Collaboration is a necessity. Ecosystem-thinking has evolved within companies. From involving supply chain partners, to triple-helix constellations including academia and public stakeholders.

Our mission is straightforward: we build bridges between our members and create touch points for our community to meet, connect and act together.

The Beacon members have the opportunity to experience collaboration in our 9.000 m² office space. The combination of working spaces, meeting facilities, a recording studio and a unique terrace overlooking Antwerp and its River Scheldt, provides plenty of reasons to frequent us. Home to more than 30 tech companies, research institutions, Belgium’s finest startup accelerator (Start it @KBC), and even a coding school (BeCode), The Beacon building is a vibrant ecosystem, infused with the spirit of innovation.

As a platform for collaboration, we provide quality contacts to our members, allowing them to grow and thrive. A mix of bespoke matchmaking, internal communication, community activities and public events are deployed to accelerate the growth of our companies by providing them access to relevant people.
