About the Sustainability challenge

The sustainability wave will hit the economy the same way the digital transformation did a few years ago. Players creating sustainable value now, will be the market leaders of tomorrow.


Our Belgian ecosystem is rich with start-ups working for a better future, a greener planet and happier communities. BrightWolves's vision is to empower those companies and help them in their mission.

The best way to support sustainable start-ups for BrightWolves is by doing what we are best at: sharing our expertise!


That's why we created the sustainability challenge. We are looking for the most promising sustainable start-ups in Belgium to share our expertise with them.


"We aim to support sustainable startups by offering them free hands-on consulting and by connecting them with BrightWolves' corporate clients."

-Miguel Van Damme, Partner at BrightWolves
