Open innovation with start-ups & scale-ups
VRT Sandbox boosts innovation within VRT and the media sector by organising collaborations with start-ups, scale-ups and entrepreneurs.
Within VRT Sandbox, scale-ups get the chance to test, validate or develop their products onsite VRT, with access to the infrastructure and production teams. In addition, VRT Sandbox runs a unique programme in which scale-ups and media organisations develop future media applications together. This way, European and Flemish scale-ups can tailor their solutions to the needs of the media sector.
After a successful collaboration with VRT, partners can also be introduced to the Sandbox Hub, which is part of Future Media Hubs. Through this international network, start-ups and scale-ups can continue to grow internationally.
Last, VRT Sandbox is connected to Media Invest Vlaanderen (MIV), the joint venture between the Flemish investment company PMV and VRT. MIV wants to strengthen the audiovisual sector in a sustainable way by investing in promising companies.
