On the business side, apart of managing his own companies, he participated to various investment groups specialized in company start ups, in Europe and the USA, like the Alta-Berkeley Fund in London, the GIMV in Belgium, Columbine venture capital Fund in Denver, the Woodlands venture-capital Fund and the Houston Advanced Research Center (HARC), Woodlands near Houston.
