About OKSIGEN ecosystem

Oksigen for social entrepreneurship is a unique ecosystem – in Belgium and Europe – aiming to provide "oxygen" to social entrepreneurship. Through a “one stop shop” the Oksigen ecosystem provides financing, incubation & coaching services, research and consultancy to entrepreneurs with social and/or environmental ambitions.

On 22/10/2013, more than 160 participants took part in the official launch of the Oksigen Ecosystem in Brussels.

OKSIGEN for social entrepreneurship in a nutshell :

The Oksigen Ecoystem is currently composed out of 4 independent organizations, focused on a common goal: to stimulate Social Entrepreneurship and maximize social impact

Each organisation has a clear role and focus - Oksigen Lab vzw/asbl (coaching and research), Oksigen Accellerator cvba (insurance mechanism for coaching), SI²Fund cvba (investments ranging from 150.000€ up to 500.000€)  and i-propeller NV/SA (consultancy).

Synergies are generated via mutual collaboration between these actors, but the ecosystem is also open to collaborations with new, external actors.
