  • What is Orange Fab not?

    Not an investment platform

    Orange fab is a free program, meaning you do not have to contribute equity. Orange Fab is not an investment platform. But there is a funding platform within the Orange Group: Orange Digital Ventures.

    Not a co-working space

    Meaning we don't expect you to move offices. However, if you do need office space - Orange is willing to provide it.

    Not an early stage exploration accelerator

    We are looking for startups that have developed a product/service which constitutes an offer, an MVP. This means you should at least already have a couple of clients or established an initial user base.

    Not just a local accelerator

    During the 3-month acceleration phase, Orange Fab will principally focus on commercial collaboration with Orange Belgium & Luxemburg business units. After this period, if you want, you can leverage Orange's powerful international network and its presence in 29 countries, all the while continuing to develop your commercial relations in Belgium and /or Luxemburg.
