About us

Networking: what comes to mind when you think of it? You most likely have memories of small talks with strangers—you remember how bored you were, repeating the same memorised lines about yourself over and over again during the evening. However, everything can be as good as we want it to be, and this certainly applies to networking.

The purpose of Antwerp Business Community is to bring curious minds together and enable them to exchange knowledge and learn from each other while building a strong professional network.

ABC is a non-for-profit community organising monthly networking events in Antwerp Belgium, on business & leadership-related topics,  has come up with a way to make networking events much more enjoyable. Don’t focus on just exchanging business cards—exchange ideas instead! If interested, check out the upcoming ABC events and prepare to fall in love with networking.

Dimos is currently doing his internship as a marketing data analyst within Bosch. It is hard to believe that the first evening he arrived in Belgium, Dimos went to attend the ABC event! Since then he has attended 5 events in total, which made him one of our regulars.

If you want to connect with Dimos, feel free to contact him on LinkedIn:

“ABC helps you express your opinion, engage with ideas and meet like-minded professionals with many different backgrounds and experiences. Sharing insights has never been easier.”

” ABC reminds me to be Aware Bold Curious”

Dimos Papadopoulos, Greek

Borth originally from Ukraine, after completing studies @Antwerp Management School, they continued their professional journeys in Belgium. Now Irina is working in Supply Chain Management and Alex – in Sales & Support @ CRM company and starting his own project. They attended 4 ABC events so far (intercultural business, negotiations, sharing economy & EQ). Find out below what they think of ABC

Alex: “I love the topics, the athmosphere and the networking parts. What ABC does different is to really engage people who come to this event to interact with the group.”
Irina: “From the negotiation event I’ve improved my approach in negotiation technique. You should place yourself in the other’s shoes, really understand them and try to find a solution that benefits both sides. You have to negotiate together, not as opponents. I’ve also found some very good books about the topic thanks to the event.”

Irina: “What I love about ABC that I can find people from other nationalities, backgrounds, industries, etc. but with the same lifestyle: they are all open-minded, eager to learn about business and have a very human approach. ABC is about sharing experiences, the events do far more than just the obligatory 1 hour listening to a lecture.”
