About ESA BIC Flanders

Let's start new business

The ESA Business Incubation Centre (BIC) Flanders in Belgium was founded in 2012 and is managed by Innotek, the knowledge centre for innovation and technology in the Province of Antwerp.

ESA BIC Flanders start-ups are hosted at Innotek's two technology houses, one in Geel and the other one in Mol, with offices and laboratory space for entrepreneurs.
