Combining the strengths of the city of Antwerp, its educational institutions, local companies, organisations and student associations, this local ecosystem aims to inspire, activate and support youngsters on their way to entrepreneurship.
The partners work on a common framework and schedule. This involves mapping out Antwerp’s entire entrepreneurial landscape. Youngsters are able to seek advice at a ‘one-stop shop’ for young entrepreneurs.
Teachers and youth workers are supported in developing entrepreneurial skills within their own working environments. Cooperation possibilities between existing initiatives are also being looked into.
TAKEOFFANTWERP_ALLIANCE is a partnership between the city of Antwerp, the Antwerp University Association (AUHA), Artesis Plantijn University College, Karel de Grote University College, the University of Antwerp, KAVKA youth centre, SINC student association & VOKA, Flanders' Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
It is supported by the ERDF and the Flemish Agency for Innovation and Entrepreneurship.
