Google names Belgian app one of world’s most promising start-ups

The CEO of tech company Aristoco, Geert Houben, has become the first Belgian ever to be invited by ICT giant Google to participate in its prestigious boot camp BlackBox Connect. Google has ranked Aristoco’s application Cubigo among the 15 most promising start-up projects in the world. Aristoco, located in Diepenbeek, Limburg province, is a spin-off of Hasselt University.

Cubigo (pictured) is a user-friendly platform for people who need care, such as the elderly or handicapped. The technology has a number of applications for use at home, like starting up a video conversation with a doctor or ordering a meal.

Thanks to the innovation, Houben is part of a select group of entrepreneurs invited to take part in BlackBox Connect. The two-week boot camp for potential leaders in world technology takes place next month in Silicon Valley in the US state of California, the heart of the global ICT sector.

“It is a major opportunity to speed up the launch of Cubigo in the US and elsewhere,” said Houben. Cubigo has already won awards in Belgium and the Netherlands.
