We are very eager autodidacts and because of cross-pollination within our network the technology realm holds few secrets for us.

Our client base stretches from Antwerp to Leuven and Brussels and is made up from organisations with a strong social mission in sectors like urban planning, education, ecology, social services, civil society or even technology itself.

Our ambition is to service them in the best way possible so that they can benefit from all these new digital solutions and feel supported in accomplishing their own mission.

Rockets are cool.
There's no getting
around that.

Why we get up in the morning

We are convinced that society will prosper if digital applications would focus on the true needs of people and not only consumerism and capital. With Spaced we want to help build an inclusive society that supports its citizens with the support of all the new digital solutions that have emerged the last decade.

We are also proud co-founders of Dear Tech, a collective that strives for more humane and future proof technology. We believe that the digital revolution, if done right, has the potential of making us more human than ever before. Technology, applied with wisdom, can lead to a real life utopia. This would not be a wanted side effect, but the legitimation of technologies existence. We as a collective want to put pressure on governments, organisations, companies and individuals to strive for this horizon.
