King Filip visits the Impact House

This week we welcomed King Filip in our offices at the Impact House, our very own dynamic hub for impact making. We’re very pleased with his interest for entrepreneurial actors, keen to solve today’s social and ecological challenges each in their own way.

We feel strengthened by this appreciation for the commitment of all of the organisations the house working daily to maximise positive societal impact, whether by financing, coaching, consultancy or network building. We join in his expression of hope for a better future upon meeting the younger generations (see picture) of the House. May this visit marks a sustained and growing interest from Belgian actors – particularly companies- to explore how to bring making impact from the margins to the centre of their work!

To find out how the visit played out, see here.
