Helping you create your sustainable citizen project in a transparent way


Open Collective Brussels (OCB) is a non-profit (ASBL/VZW) acting as an enabler for easy entrepreneurship activation. 

The association's mission is to make Brussels a better city to live and work, and to improve civic participation within our communities. 

We do that by:

  • allowing social entrepreneurs to launch a project without having to set up their own legal entity
  • offering fiscal sponsorship (tax deductible donations) and the possibility to raise subsidies without having to create an ASBL/vzw
  • giving your project the opportunity to hire employees, Smart contractors, volunteers,...
  • using technology as a common good

Social Impact

There are many people who are trying to redefine mobility, education, environment, art, culture, ...

Yet, these communities often do not have access to the right tools, contacts, and smart ecosystem that could help them sustain their activity.

That's what we want to explore with Open Collective Brussels. Can we recreate a city from the bottom up, with transparency, inclusiveness, and an experimentation spirit at its core? A city where everyone is invited to contribute? A city where everything is possible

We will support projects aimed at fostering civic participation, creating art, democratic debate, rebuild community ties and strengths.
