Draft financial accounts 2022

Dear shareholders,

Please find the draft annual accounts of 2022 attached. These are set to be approved and finalized in the company’s (non-public) general assembly on April 12th. The finalised annual accounts will be shared post-meeting, please allow us to elaborate on the key metrics in the meantime.

2022 was the year in which we closed the third and final cohort of the accelerator program. A total of thirty-one startups joined the portfolio over the course of three years. By the end of 2022, the company had received a stake in 29 of these startups; two more startups issued their shares to us in 2023.

As explained in the IM of the program, the investments made by the shareholders are used to accelerate the startups in their pre-seed stage. Once they've experienced significant growth (generally until the Series B round), we exit the startups and investors benefit from the proceeds of this transaction. This means the company is 'designed' to make an accounting loss in the first years of its existence, as was the case in 2022 (result of -€226k).

Last month, we also published the Report for 2022 with details on the portfolio and updates on the portfolio companies, their progress and other relevant statistics. This file can be found on the documents section on Nx'change.

We hope this provides some context to the annual accounts. Please do not hesitate to contact our Investment Director Joey Moreau (joey.moreau@startupbootcamp.org) if you have any questions or simply would like to catch up.

Kind regards,

Aankondiging van het SBC FinTech & CyberSecurity Cohort III

Beste aandeelhouders,

Wij hopen dat u het goed maakt.

Sinds het succesvol afronden van de beursgang van het SBC Fintech & Cybersecurity Programma in 2019 hebben wij de luxe gehad om van uw actieve deelname te mogen genieten tijdens het scouten, selecteren & ondersteunen van de portfolio startups. Ons laatste selectieproces bracht ons van [1] de Staat van Fintech naar de [2] Shortlist Evaluatie die ons uiteindelijk leidde naar de [3] Selectiedagen.

De Selectiedagen die deze week plaatsvonden waren een nog energiekere-, inspirerende- en meer interactieve ervaring dan we hadden durven hopen. De 20 deelnemende startups hebben geweldig werk geleverd, waardoor het een enorme uitdaging was om de laatste 10 portfolio-startups te selecteren.

Na een uitgebreid juryberaad waarvoor ruim 10.000 datapunten zijn verzameld en overwogen hebben we besloten een extra startup toe te voegen aan het Startupbootcamp FinTech & CyberSecurity 2022 Cohort. Het is daarom met trots en vreugde dat we u de 11 startups presenteren als laatste zullen toetreden tot het SBC Fintech & Cybersecurity portfolio.
