Telenet Kickstart boosts the Belgian start-up community. Through structural partnerships with leading incubators and accelerators, we provide mentoring and coaching to early stage (digital) entrepreneurs, teaching them how to turn their innovative idea into a scalable and market-ready solution. In addition, we organise international trips and network events.


Telenet Kickstart helps start-ups, scale-ups and digital entrepreneurs to accelerate their business. Through the imec.istart vertical for start-ups active in the Media, Telecom and Entertainment sectors, we share our extensive sector expertise and open up our broad business network to promising digital entrepreneurs. The imec.istart vertical is a joint initiative of Barco, IMEC, Mediahuis, Medialaan and Telenet as investing partners, together with MediaNet Vlaanderen and VRT Sandbox as supporting partners.

Sustainable growth

Through the Telenet Kickstart program, we invest in start-ups and scale-ups that provide added value to our own business activities as a leading telecom, media and entertainment company. We establish strategic win-win partnerships by investing financially or by buying services from innovative digital entrepreneurs.


Telenet Mentors

Telenet employees are actively involved in the Telenet Kickstart program. They are always looking forward to sharing their knowledge and expertise with young entrepreneurs and start-ups.


Track record

Telenet Kickstart is no newbie when it comes to supporting young, digital entrepreneurs. We started our start-up journey back in September 2014, when we launched our first early stage incubation program together with the Antwerp-based Idealabs accelerator.


How are the Telenet Kickstart start-ups doing?

Through its partnership with Idealabs (2014-2016), Telenet Kickstart has helped 18 early start-ups to boost their innovative idea. How are they doing today?
