Project presentation

LINC est un projet d'innovation sociale pour aider à résoudre des crises de logement. The dream of LINC is to build communities of connected people, living in comfortable housing. After Dubai, Brussels is the most diverse city in the world, 80% of inhabitants having foreign roots. Although this multi-culture-identity of Brussels creates good vibes and plenty of opportunities, it also brings along tensions with regard to the living-together of 1,2 million individuals of all origin, age, income level, language, cultural habits, personal stories etc. LINC wants to alleviate the problems inherent to the housing crisis that is currently going on in Brussels and in many cities around the globe. Concretely it wants to set up an innovative multi-stakeholder-cooperative based on 3 building blocks: people, housing, and funding. Today our pitch is meant to introduce the idea of LINC to the large public, to get feedback from the jury, and, who knows, being offered concrete help that would enable us to further develop this collaborative project. The current team of LINC consists of 3 persons, working hard in order to go through with the founding of the cooperative during the second half of 2019.

Project requirements/needs

  • Others
  • Funding
  • Partnership / Associates (which skills?)
  • Owners of buildings in Brussels who are interested in selling their property to the cooperative
LINC is looking for partners/associates skilled in the following areas:
- IT
- Communication / Social Media / Digital storytelling
- legislation / company law / notary
- fiscality and accounting

Funding : LINC is planning to use the tool of crowdfinancing to raise capital (money in exchange for shares of the coop). We would like to get in contact with crowdfinancing platforms.

Other requirement n°1: LINC would like to meet with owners of buildings (of about 20 housing units) who, for whatever reason, would like to sell their building to the cooperative, in return for shares. Once the sale concluded, these former owners would become co-owner of the patrimony of the coop instead.
