At the end of November 2016, two Limburg entrepreneurs founded an investment fund and VZW around innovative HR software; HR Tech Valley. 

Both concluded that HR needed to focus on people and not processes. However, most of the important stakeholders are unaware of the evolution and opportunities of new HR Technology.


More and more HR Tech solutions focus on increasing employee experience, engagement and analytics, on supporting recruiters in recruiting better, on interaction and collaboration, giving feedback and/or recognition. In short: enabling organizations to attract, develop and retain the right people. ”
