Yves Van Ingelgem from Zensor

Zensor, that started as a spin-off from the VUB in 2013, is nominated for the Rising Star award edition 2017, together with 9 other innovative enterprises. The Rising Star selection is part of the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 competition and is designed for promising companies that have been active in the technology sector for less than four years. Zensor will participate in a pitch presentation in Brussels on 14 November 2017. An independent jury will select the 2017 Rising Star. 


Zensor serves industries such as renewable energy, civil infrastructure, oil & gas and pipelines. The company allows safe and cost-effective intelligent monitoring of assets, providing real-time integrity management, leading to optimal maintenance planning as well as lifetime extension. This happens through sensor-driven data collection and infrastructure analytics.


It is not the first time that Zensor caught the public eye. In 2015, a first recognition was awarded as MIT Innovator under 35 for Belgium and in 2016 Zensor was awarded the Rising Star of the Blue Economy for their innovative offering for the offshore wind, and wave and tidal industry. The award was handed out by the European Commission (DG Maritime) in Hamburg, Germany. In March 2017 it closed an investment round exceeding 1 million € supported by the well-known Belgian entrepreneur Paul Kumpen and the German fund SHS Ventures.


The Deloitte Technology Fast 50 competition is an annual selection of the 50 fastest growing and innovative technology companies headquartered in Belgium. Public or private companies who develop a technology related product or service and who have experienced substantial revenue growth over the last four years can enter the competition for their chance to be nominated as one of the 50 fastest-growing technology companies in Belgium.
