20 years experience - A brand new app!

  • 1996-2011

    The beginning

    VEN Brussels was founded in june 1996 by Christophe Dutordoir.

    The company has since then been active on the Belgian web scene with over 445 web references.


    But it is mainly in the area of complex, high added value database developments that VEN Brussels earned its solid reputation, notably with e-commerce and/or ticketing systems.


    VEN Brussels has also been involved in complex custom developments for companies or institutions like Petrofina – worldwide security datasheets intranet – DG JAI (Justice et Affaires Intérieures) intranet, Batibouw, Photo Hall & Magritte e-commerce website, to name a few.

  • March 2011

    VEN Brussels joins Emakina

    In 2011, VEN Brussels consolidated it's customer’s portfolio, and joined Emakina, leading european digital agency.

  • December 2016

    Launching of Business Beacon

    After several years of fruitful collaboration with Emakina, VEN Brussels decided to regain its independance, and to launch a project of it's own: Business Beacon.


    For so many years, VEN Brussels operations have totaly relied on a in-house application called
    ... the Intranet :-)


    With such a positive experience, we finaly decided to bring this application - now entirely redeveloped and renamed Business Beacon - to the market, for the greatest benefit of our customers.


    Beacon [bee-kuh n]
    noun : a guiding or warning signal, as a light or fire, especially one in an elevated position.
