During the pandemic, we witnessed layoffs and pay cuts by a lot of companies. In fact, some of them even froze hiring. However, for the past few months, things are looking better. Especially for the Belgium startup ecosystem, as it has been growing and thriving, and entrepreneurs are now finding it easier to raise funds.
Currently, the most popular startup hubs in Belgium are Brussels, Ghent, Antwerp, Hasselt, Waterloo, and Liege.
