Wrapping Up our first 18 months of activity at DigitYser
DigitYser was initiated by the AI & Data Science Community of Belgium with the support of Sofina, the Region of Brussels and Engie.
Together with our partners and volunteers we turned an empty building near the Canal into a bursting digital clubhouse.
Over the past 18 months we organised over 500 events for over 6000 visitors aimed at sharing knowledge about digital innovation and entrepreneurship to a very broad public.
Soon after our launch in December 2017 the press called DigitYser ‘The new hart of the digital entrepreneur in Brussels.’
The fact that we were hosting under one roof all the technologies supported by the Next Tech plan received a warm welcome from all the AI, Data, VR, IoT and Blockchain communities of Brussels.
We achieved our objective to:
Help the digital entrepreneur to make their dreams come true in Brussels. We support them in their effort to transform their initial idea into a invoiceable service. We do that with the support of our technical and innovation partners together with Innoviris and Hub.Brussels.
2. Boost digital skills by offering digital trainings, hands-on workshops, meetups, bootcamps, hackathons, learnathons …
3. And we made Brussels shine by organising different international events such as the W3C annual meeting on VR or the Washington Chambers of commerce event on GDPR privacy.
We are ready for 2019:
Our team is now mature and ready to take on the workload.
Our challenges are mainly focussed on the quality of our offering that we want to be more inclusive and in line with the daily needs of a starting digital entrepreneur.
We will reach more people in 2019.
