In Flanders, there are three ways of involving family, friends and fans in the start-up of your Flanders-based enterprise:
- Co-shareholders – involve people in your environment to finance your project by making them co-shareholders.
- Borrowing – you can also borrow money from family, friends and fans. This will be considered a quasi-entity by other creditors, if the lender declares this loan subordinate to the other creditors.
- WIN-WIN loan – with this type of loan, the government of Flanders actively supports you when involving family, friends and fans in funding your business.
