Rising Star Monitor

The Rising Star Monitor provides a snapshot of the trends and challenges involved in young, high-potential ventures in Belgium. This study is the first to provide insights into questions such as how many founders Belgian scale-ups have, where co-founders are found, how founding teams split their equity and what equity stake they retain. We also provide detailed information on founders’ cash remuneration.

You can participate in our study by completing a questionnaire. What’s in it for you?

    • A personal benchmark report in which your remuneration policy is compared to similar companies with respect to age, sales, and industry. Download an example of a personal benchmark report.
    • A personal invitation to a networking event during which the results of the study will be communicated.
      Are you interested in participating in our study? Register now and we will keep you informed about the launch of our next edition of the Rising Star Monitor.


The newsletters provide more detailed information on specific challenges of scale-ups. These newsletters combine insights from our own research, topical experts and testimonials from scale-up entrepreneurs. Some examples of topics that will be further discussed in our newsletters include founding team stability and founder exit, female entrepreneurship and remuneration of non-founding executives.
