3 days to launch your Belgium-changing project
WHY ATTEND HACK BELGIUM?
Together with 1000 participants, we’re going to tackle the societal challenges we feel aren’t being taken seriously enough. Twelve challenges, touching every facet of our lives and society. The 3-day program will take us from inspiration to building to launching our own projects. Projects that bring us new opportunities, new business and new perspectives.
You’ll receive the best support Belgium has to offer: 140 workshops and consultation sessions on design, business and technology. More than 200 experts to help you with every question. 10 emerging technologies present on site. It’s the best place for you to forge new partnerships and to get that new spine-tingling project going.
