Flanders Innovation & Entrepreneurship – VLAIO for short – is the point of contact of the Flemish Government for all entrepreneurs in Flanders. They stimulate and support innovation and entrepreneurship and contribute to a positive business climate that strengthens sustainable economic growth and job creation. They do this in collaboration with many partners in a strong network.
VLAIO seeks to stimulate growth and innovation by financially supporting businesses with subsidies. This enables them to grow, transform and innovate. Examples of such subsidies are the SME portfolio, the SME growth subsidy, ecology premium and research & development projects.
