WATT Factory combines the expertise and enthusiasm of five experienced entrepreneurs motivated by sustainability and innovation.

I believe it’s important as a technology company CEO to support others in their entrepreneurship plans. Besides creating a strong local community, developing a vast international network with the same focus is a priority.

Jonas Dhaenens, CEO Intelligent

The climate change and smart cities domains are both hot and future-proof while covering so many subjects.

Nicolas Béarelle, CEO Re-Vive

I am eager to commit my 25 years as an entrepreneur and CEO at Transics in order to develop entrepreneurial projects in Smart Cities & Climate to achieve exponential growth together.

Walter Mastelinck, Founder & ex-CEO Transics

I value the re-purposing of empty buildings, it’s appealing to bring new life to rather outdated areas of the city and create new dynamics.

Alex De Witte, Real Estate Entrepreneur

This project helps entrepreneurs through mentoring and knowledge. As a serial entrepreneur, my experience has found this to be very useful.

Stephan Bostoen, Serial Entrepreneur
