Start-up buildings aim to temporarily house one or more SMEs during their launch phase, offering them premises at attractive conditions with or without services and shared facilities (telephone, photocopier, meeting room, secretarial services, Internet, reception, furniture, and more). This option allows new companies to determine their future development as well as their real needs before making the decision to invest in their own facility.
Business centres constitute the ideal launch base for entrepreneurs wishing to benefit from immediate access to fully-equipped offices and meeting room; domiciliation of head offices or sales offices; telephone service, complete multilingual secretarial service; office logistics, fax, photocopiers, printers, scanner, etc.
A co-working space is a shared working space with a room layout and furniture and business model designed to favour new encounters, collaboration, discussions and work in order to ensure the implementation of projects.
In Wallonia, the CoWallonia network brings together eight co-working spaces spread out around the following towns: Liège, Seraing, Tournai, Namur, La Louvière, Charleroi, Louvain-la-Neuve and Mons.
