Partnering for Impact

A lot of businesses and non-profit organisations in our network cooperate with each other. Via the Partnership Symphony we want to chart the success factors of these innovative partnerships and stimulate future collaborations.


  • Share best practices among our members
  • Stimulate collaborations
  • Create innovative partnerships


In recent years, we have seen numerous partnerships develop between companies, civil society and educational institutions in Belgium. Since 2013 more than 100 inspiring cases have been submitted for our Sustainable Partnerships Award. A number of these partnerships have a great deal of potential for increased social impact.

We are therefore developing a Partnership Symphony with the support of MVO Vlaanderen. This tool is primarily intended to make it easier to establish future partnerships. In the coming months, we are gathering the basic ingredients for successful partnerships through interviews with participants in the previous Sustainable Partnerships Award.
