VIDEO: Brussels entrepreneurs vs COVID-19
Mandated by the Brussels government to support businesses in their development, hub.brussels is today doing everything it can to keep them afloat. We asked beneficiaries from different sectors to share their challenges, their hopes and their possible solutions on video… while respecting distance regulations!
Positive initiatives in the time of COVID-19
Beyond the official support measures put in place, the community is not lacking in creativity to help its (small) businesses get through the coronavirus crisis.
We believe these good ideas, both public and private, deserve a special place on our networks, although hub.brussels is, for the most part, not actively involved. This non-exhaustive list of initiatives identified during this crisis is intended to inspire and bring hope to entrepreneurs.
We take this opportunity to thank and congratulate all of these project leaders!
