Exchange is Belgian not-for-profit organisation. Its mission is to stimulate entrepreneurship as a sustainable and powerful means against poverty in developing economies. To achieve this goal Exchange aims at providing companies, organisations and training centres in the target countries with entrepreneurial expertise and global networks from the North. Exchange is 100% demand-driven. Businesses and organisations from the South take the initiative to submit their project application. We find this extremely important: in this way, the “ownership” of a project stays fully with the applicant. Applications for various types of assistance can be submitted: general management issues, business planning, marketing, accountancy, technical support, export, etc.


The Shift helpt leden gebruik maken van het globaal kader van de UN Sustainable Development Goals om hun maatschappelijke ambities in kaart te brengen.

Successful entrepreneurship? That is thé most sustainable and powerful way to tackle poverty. However, in order to become a successful entrepreneur, knowledge is crucial. That is exactly why Exchange facilitates the exchange of knowledge between entrepreneurs and professionals in the North and the South. In doing so, our organisation empowers companies in developing economies and creates measurable growth for them.
