Launching and growing innovation effectively does not happen overnight. It requires courage, out-of-the-box thinking, and treading paths where no one has gone before.

Young companies with innovative projects are often change makers with a real sustainable impact within their domain and beyond. Securing a place on the market remains a challenge where funding can provide the tipping point, both as a start-up and as a growth company.

Brussels continues to focus on stimulating and financing start-ups and scale-ups. Innoviris has over 10 years of experience with the successful funding programme 'Innovative Starters Award'.


This 'Award' is not just a prestigious statuette or a podium, but a substantial financing of EUR 500 000 for the laureates of the programme.

For ambitious and, above all, groundbreaking projects that can convince the jury, the Brussels government, together with Innoviris, puts those first euros on the table. A doorway and leverage for future investors who can confidently co-invest in innovative potential.


The new call for the Innovative Starters Award 2022 has been launched. Until 8 July 2022, pioneers can submit their project and have a chance to win this valuable funding in Brussels.
