Story of Co.Station

Where it all started.

The story of Co.Station started in 2014 at Place Sainte Gudule in Brussels.

BNP Paribas Fortis, together with another private partner, decided to take over a co-working place and to transform it into a workspace where tech startups, scaleups, entrepreneurs and companies can meet, connect, create opportunities to grow together!

Soon Co.Station Brussels grew with a second floor and became a reference in the Brussels tech ecosystem offering the latest in tech trends with startups and companies changing the world. Co.Station is now a coworking place offering offices, meeting rooms and innovation programs for tech startups, scaleups and companies.

A few months later, it became clear that Co.Station needed to be a multi-companies – non-exclusive initiative – and thus more global partners (Proximus, SD Worx and USG) came on board.

At the same time, Co.Station launched itself into more cities: Co.Station Gent in 2016, Co.Station Charleroi in 2018 with the support of Sambrinvest.

In October 2019, Co.Station invited its shareholders, partners, customers, residents & team to celebrate its 5th Anniversary! 5 years of growth, 5 years of entrepreneurship and 5 years of innovation! Through the years, Co.Station created innovative co-working places where entrepreneurs to grow their business and companies to innovate.

On this occasion, Co.Station announced its new purpose to encourage and nurture Innovation Ecosystems. Co.Station believes that open innovation drives a prosperous society. Therefore, we bring together different parties to solve complex business and societal challenges in an efficient way. This ecosystem building started already in 2019 with the IO.Energy Ecosystem, Operated by Co.Station.

We will continue to serve the entrepreneurial and innovation needs with our shareholders & partners BNP Paribas Fortis, Proximus, SD Worx, Solvus, and are very proud to announce new national and structural partnerships with: Accenture and Cresco I Business Law Firm.
