Join us at the most important gathering of startups on the planet. Apply to ALPHA.

We like Belgian startups. We’ve already taken a look at 23 Belgian startups on their way to Web Summit and we’re partnering with Belgian non-profit Startups.be.

They’re an integral part of the Belgian tech ecosystem – they help startups thrive right across Belgium.

We’re excited about the drones, big data and music that Belgium are sending our way this November – check out these Belgians coming to Web Summit:



Airobot are improving safety in the drone industry. The work they do decreases the risk of crashing.

They’ve come up with a component known as “collision avoidance” or “sense and avoid” that allows the drones keep away from other objects. 

Airobot was founded in 2015 by Kristof Beenders and Roy Jeunen.

As you can see from the video above, neoScores are bringing classical music into the digital age.

The Brussels Philharmonic Orchestra have decided to stop using paper scores. They now use tablets with neoScores’ digital scores which are saved in the cloud.

It’s thought their product may even help improve musicians’ performance.
