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.

Belgian Startup Manifesto

Storify CEO Xavier Damman’s contribution makes excellent starting points.
