Hyperfox Selected for Tech Accelerator Birdhouse

Hyperfox joins Birdhouse Tech Accelerator for growth and international expansion.

April 8, 2024

Hyperfox, a startup based in Limburg on the Corda Campus, has been chosen to participate in the 15th cohort of the renowned technology accelerator Birdhouse.

Exciting Opportunity and Growth

This opportunity presents the young company with a robust three-month acceleration program along with a cash investment. Founded in 2016 with support from Belfius, Birdhouse has guided nearly 200 startups since its inception, and Hyperfox is now joining the next cohort. This makes Birdhouse one of the larger Belgian accelerators, with last year seeing the addition of its own venture capital fund.

Mentorship and Development

The 15th cohort is being hosted by Hadewig De Corte, formerly holding C-level positions at institutions like Ziekenhuis Sint-Jan Brussel, Wolters Kluwer, and BNP Paribas Fortis. "Tom and his team successfully navigated through a rigorous selection process, where I played the role of a tough critic. As the 'mother hen' of this cohort, I am eager to propel Hyperfox towards sustainable growth," said De Corte. "Over the next 12 weeks, we will immerse Hyperfox and 10 other high-potential entrepreneurs in a pool of strong mentorship from our captains of industry, laying solid foundations for robust international expansion."

Early Progress and Future Goals

"On just day 2 of the program, we've already had over 15 calls with potential mentors and advisors, each one an expert in their field, accomplishing what we aim to do with our 'foxes'," remarked founder Tom Devos. "I look forward to strengthening and preparing the company for the next phase in the coming weeks. Our story can be amplified, our platform made more robust, and our processes streamlined. Birdhouse provides us with valuable insights for sustainable growth."

De Corte concludes lightheartedly, "Excited to see what happens if you put a fox in a birdhouse."

About Hyperfox

One year after its launch, Hyperfox has already experienced significant growth, serving clients such as BergHOFF, Demeyere, Selecta, and Joma Sport in the Benelux region, as well as Yusen Logistics in Germany. Their strength lies in automating all incoming orders in the manufacturing industry. "Our clients in the manufacturing sector receive orders daily from around the world through various channels. Too often, these come via phone, email, or Excel files, with knowledge residing solely with administrative staff. With Hyperfox, we automate the entire process. The result? A manageable workload for the back office, fewer errors on the floor, and more time for proactive tasks," explained Tom Devos, founder of Hyperfox.
