Which entrepreneurs will be able to realise their dreams with the help of Start it @kbc? We are looking forward to introducing them on Tuesday 7 February. In addition, you will be among the first to find out how Start it will be making the difference for enterprising Belgium in 2017.

All we ask you is to reserve the date in your schedule for this interesting morning on an exclusive location in the city centre of Brussels. You will soon receive the press invitation including all details.

We will meet you on 7 February!
The Start it @kbc team
