How to become the first Belgian Unicorn?

In this presentation Stijn Christiaens will talk about the history of Collibra, the ups and downs, the formula of the unicorn and what we have planned next.

Collibra

The enterprise software startup Collibra was launched in 2008 as a spinoff from the Vrije Universiteit Brussels. The early years were spent looking for their position in the market. Once wthey found it, they kept growing rapidly (3 digit growth) and steadily. In 2014 they crossed the pond into the United States which further accelerated their growth to the global market leader in Data Intelligence they are today. Over those 11 years they made use of all forms of capitalization: from Friends, Family & Fools, over subsidies and Business Angels and a Seed Investment from local Brussels’ funds, to international investments from ever bigger VC firms.
