Enterprise Flanders (NL: Agentschap Ondernemen, AO)
is the agency of the Flemish regional government that implements the policy on entrepreneurship in Flanders, and, more specifically, assists SMEs in their business operations providing the best framework conditions as defined by the government.
Enterprise Flanders implements this policy either by directly rendering services to entrepreneurs along the whole business cycle of an enterprise, or by assisting a whole range of business support organizations in their activities for SMEs.
Enterprise Flanders also supports and stimulates other stakeholders in their endeavors to create a genuine and entrepreneurial ecosystem. Enterprise Flanders closely cooperates with Flanders Investment & Trade (FIT), which implements the Flemish policy on internationalization, and the Agency for Innovation by Science and Technology (IWT), which implements the Flemish policy on innovation.
