Who We Are

The founders are three expats who’ve lived in Brussels long enough to know all the local ins-and-outs, without forgetting what it’s like to be a new arrival. We have years of combined experience in and with the business, industry association, and not-for-profit worlds centered around the European Union and the local business environment beyond the Bubble. Here’s a bit more about us:
