Our story

Karen Boers, Laurent Hublet and Rodolphe Verhaegen have combined their forces around a common goal: to give everyone access to jobs of the future.

Karen promotes the role of start-ups in the economy.
Laurent prepares Belgium for the digital opportunity, within the government.
Rodolphe returns from Silicon Valley.

All three note the lack of developers, youth unemployment and opportunities in the corporate world.


In 2016, they sealed a partnership with Simplon, raised funds, brought together an operational and educational team and launched BeCode.
The next step is taking shape with the start-up in 2017 of two classes of apprentice-developers. :)

The team

Our team brings together managers and educators from a variety of backgrounds.
What brings us together is the passion for education and the strong desire to give access to a better future thanks to the exciting jobs of the Net.
Come and meet us in Brussels, Charleroi and soon in other cities.
