Belgium Startup Trip

The Belgium Startup Trip brings together a group of ambitious students with an entrepreneurial mindset. We want to inspire these students, broaden their horizon and give them a unique experience. All in Belgium!
On the trip we aim to attend talks of startups, investors, incubators, top-entrepreneurs and other interesting organizations. This way, we give an overview of what Belgium has to offer for the aspiring individuals participating at the Belgium Startup Trip.
