Pitchwave 3

New record: 323 start-ups want to accelerate at Start it @KBC

For the sixth year in a row, Start it @KBC breaks its own record: no fewer than 323 start-ups registered for the first pitch wave of 2021 to accelerate their business at Start it @KBC. 64 of them were eventually retained by the ten jury teams, after two intensive, digital pitch days. They will be coached in the coming months to scale up their business. More than one in three founders (35%) left their previous employer to start their own start-up. Remarkably: four out of ten do so deliberately in order to have a real impact on the world within a young, agile start-up.
