“Never waste a good crisis,” a famous saying by Winston Churchill, but also the idea behind the Crisis Code Cracker. This action plan helps companies in the Belgian technology sector to make their companies future-proof in three steps. More than 90 West-Flemish companies have already participated free of charge thanks to the provincial recovery plan of POM West-Vlaanderen. A result that is expected to continue to go up in a straight line.
