Liedekerke mentors start-ups in the imec.istart Business Acceleration Program














Last Wednesday, our Liedekerke Start-up Team gave a presentation on legal topics to a room of ambitious entrepreneurs selected by imec.istart.

After the presentation, the start-ups joined one-to-one sessions with our lawyers and discussed the legal issues they are faced with.

The Liedekerke Start-up Team, coordinated by Christel Van den Eynden and Wim Dedecker further consists of Steven Peeters, Davy Vandenbussche, Maurits Arnauw, Erika Ellyne, Marie Van Rossem & Jakob Mulier.

Imec.istart is IMEC’s Business Incubation Program set up to support tech start-ups with coaching, facilities and funding. The program has an excellent reputation in the market (recognized in 2015 by UBI Global as one of the world’s best University Business Accelerator) and an impressive success rate in comparison with other incubator programs.
