THE BEACON: A SMART INNOVATION HUB
The Beacon is a smart innovation hub in the centre of Antwerp, focused on the key Internet of Things & Artificial Intelligence domains of smart city, mobility, logistics and industry. It is a community where tech companies, industry, research institutes, the city and the Port of Antwerp join forces to develop tomorrow’s high-quality smart applications. Within one year, nearly 50 startups, scale-ups and corporates took an office or flex seat in The Beacon. A dedicated The Beacon management brings these companies together in a broad community to create new products and services in open innovation.
VENTURE BUILDING AND ACQUISITION
The Beacon will act as a venture builder for its founding fathers: incubated ideas within these partners will be developed into independent companies. The Beacon will also develop an international strategy, attracting new companies from abroad to The Beacon community. This strategy will give new opportunities to the companies in The Beacon community.
