This report summarizes all the activities of
the first year and I could not be more proud
and thankful for all the help we received.
Our clubhouse has now become a roaring place
full of digital startups, expert communities and
innovation workgroups focussing on AI, VR, Iot
and Blockchain. It is used by many companies
for innovative ‘offsites’ and workshops. We host
technical trainings, master classes and hands-on
workshops. Next Tech Communities can use the
space for free to organise meetups. Digityser is
the best space in Brussels to boost innovation and
Over the past year, we employed, trained and
coached long time job seekers, students, volunteers,
young graduates. We also offered traineeships to
help tomorrow’s working people grow and learn
in a nice start-up environment. We boosted digital
innovation, by organizing hackathons. We helped
train the new data science professionals, Java
developpers and the VR specialists of tomorrow.
We made Brussels shine by hosting international
conferences and shared knowledge with workshops.
We acted as a bridge by organising jobfairs, linking
companies with promising startups and bringing
the universities in touch with the business
world. We promote social responsibility in
our organization and believe we can have
a considerable social impact on the Canal
region. We facilitated company creation with
coaching sessions and were instrumental
in the creation of réseau entreprendre
North. We had great support from the press
with articles in de Tijd, L’Echo and Le Soir
mentioning DigitYser as «the Clubhouse of
the tech communities of Brussels» and were
assisted by numerous volunteers.
It was also a year of transformation of the
venue where we upgraded a cold and empty
building into a meeting space for tech
entrepreneurs bursting with energy and
projects. We build modern meeting rooms,
installed video recording facilities, managed
to stream the content of the meetups online
and provided a space for the cyclists to
shower after their ride to work.
Digityser is now yours to use, I’m looking
forward to meeting you here soon.
