Why StartAI?
Only a quarter of Belgian companies are currently using AI to leverage their data assets and improve decision-making.


The other 75% are not yet reaping the benefits of AI. These are mainly small businesses and SMEs, while they can experience the greatest positive impact with AI adoption. The main reason appears to be the lack of knowledge and AI-expertise.


Tap into our industry experience and collaborate with our AI-experts to kick-start or accelerate your AI journey.



A.I. top performers are 3X more likely to report revenue gains over 10%.


of executives believe A.I. must be leveraged to achieve growth objectives.

  • Any SME (max. 250 employees), organisation or association, starting or established, regardless of its digital maturity or sector.
  • Companies that want to discover and understand opportunities for AI in a realistic way
  • Companies that want to start with AI but don’t know where and how to start
  • Companies that want to leverage their available data assets
  • Companies with a limited amount of data and with the ambition to become data-driven




StartAI is focused on supporting companies to discover and evaluate applications for AI in your company. If your company is eligible, (y)our team will:


  • Deep dive into the available data and identify feasible use cases with impact
  • Share best practices to evaluate possible AI projects for your company
  • Map out the use case roadmap in detail so you are ready to take the next step in your AI journey

Our assessment could lead to the conclusion that there are currently no relevant use cases for AI in your company, and that’s OK. In this case, we will focus our guidance on further data collection, data governance and potential data endeavors for the future.




Faktion’s services will cover three full days (including preparation, analysis, reporting).

The coaching sessions can be organized on-site or remotely.
