Oct 27, 2022
17:00 - 20:00


On October 27, 2022, imec.istart organises an online matchmaking event for potential co-founders of Belgium-based tech startups.

  • Are you entrepreneurial and curious to join a startup?
  • Ready to turn your startup idea into reality, but still looking for the right partner?
  • Are you currently running an early-stage startup but you are still looking for a co-founder?

This is a free matchmaking event for enthusiastic, entrepreneurial people, people with interesting expertise to build a tech start-up or to assist in a start-up business, and people who want to create an impact in other people’s lives.

Join, find the right teammates and see if you can start and run a business together.

We are matching these profiles:

  • Leader: You are an entrepreneur or researcher with a business idea or already an existing venture and are looking for passionate partners with complementary skills
  • Seeker: You are looking to join a startup as a (co)-founder or as part of the management board.
  • Mixed profile: You are entrepreneurial and have an idea yourself but are also willing to join another founding team or an existing venture

With the following skills:

  • IT: you have skills in IT, software, hardware, systems and networks
  • Domain expertise: Industry-specific or domain knowledge, such as MedTech,. renewable energy or B2B SaaS, but also creative skills such as game design, graphic design, etc.
  • Business: Commercial (sales, marketing, business development) HR, and/or financial skills
