The link to a high-tech entrepreneurship community

Leuven.Inc's mission, established in 1999, was to build a permanent bridge between knowledge centers, high-tech entrepreneurs, enterprises and their socio-economic partners.

Through its networking events Leuven.Inc aimed at creating a communication platform where young starters, scientists and technology growth companies meet and knowledge and expertise are shared. It has become a network of members with areas of expertise ranging from micro electronics, engineering, health and medical research, to ICT, life sciences, food and materials and many more.

The overall goal is to create a healthy and dynamic, future-oriented and expanding prosperity in the region of Leuven, Flanders and beyond.


Open door to the world

Leuven.Inc actively participated in the international network of the knowledge community, forging bonds and opening new channels of communication beyond boundaries, always putting an emphasis on the advantages of the Leuven region as an essential junction of a global knowledge and network economy.
