Agentschap Innoveren & Ondernemen (Flanders Innovation & Entrepreneurship)

Flanders Innovation & Entrepreneurship (in Dutch: Agentschap Innoveren & Ondernemen) is a government agency, charged with implementing the economic, innovation and enterprise policy in Flanders, the Dutch speaking northern part of Belgium.

We help companies with the startup of their activities, the grow and continuity of their business, but also with the search for the right location, information on permits, financing, investments in innovation and ecological technologies, and other topics. In short, we confidentially guide entrepreneurs throughout the government landscape.

In the field of business transfer, the agency developed an integrated policy that stimulates the continuity of companies by succession or acquisition. In close collaboration with the field operators, Flanders Innovation & Entrepreneurship develops actions:

  • to raise awareness about business transfer in Flanders,
  • to generate and disclose information (website, brochures, training programs, events),
  • to subsidize coaching and advice,
  • to connect the dots in the business transfer ecosystem.
