Start it @KBC enquiry: employment, sales and investment in startups are on the rise
Wednesday, February 19, 2020 — Brussels. The average startup creates twice as many jobs as the average SME in our country. Nearly nine out of ten SMEs are sole traders, within startups that is only 1.4 percent. This is demonstrated by a survey of Start it @KBC, the largest accelerator in the country. Along with the number of jobs and rising sales, investments in startups are therefore also increasing, however the role of the government certainly remains crucial at an early stage to allow startups to grow.
