An initiative has been launched to gather the Belgian Startup community behind a Manifesto that will be addressed to the Belgian government.
UPDATE: you can sign the manifesto here
Given the sorry state of the entrepreneurial and innovation ecosystem and political apathy in Belgium (in comparison to similar-sized countries like the Baltic states or Denmark), this is a welcome move. Until the end of February, please share your stories and propositions for a more favorable startup environment in Belgium using the hashtag #BEStartupManifesto.
Storify CEO Xavier Damman’s contribution makes excellent starting points.
