Olivier Vanden Eynde speaks at TCI Global Network Conference

On Tuesday October 8th, Close the Gap and WorldLoop’s founder & CEO Olivier Vanden Eynde gave a keynote at the TCI Global Network Conference in Antwerp.

This conference, the 22nd edition already, was organised by Flanders Investment and Trade in partnership with Flanders Innovation & Entrepreneurship and VisitFlanders. During the conference, experts from around the globe gathered in a forum setting—while seeking to make headway in the domains of cluster development, regional competitiveness and innovation support.


One of the key phrases of his keynote was about how Close the Gap and WorldLoop work closely together with the public and private sector: “Even in our early start-up years, we had the support of Flanders Investment & Trade (FIT). Now, after closing the gap for 15 years, we’ve become a for profit company working together with all parts of the value chain to create a way that everyone wins.” Olivier Vanden Eynde.

His keynote fit perfectly in the theme of the conference: social economy, sustainability and digital innovation. Olivier gave his keynote during the opening reception of the event, which was attended by national and international business leaders, entrepreneurs and investors.
