For the last 7 years, Cécile Veyrié has worked as a Retail Development Consultant at hub.brussels (formerly atrium.brussels).
One of her roles is to support individuals or companies opening shops for the first time in Brussels. This includes looking with them at the various aspects of a business plan, specifically: value propositions, target customers and the market - including competitors, communication strategy and so on.
Knowing the local area is also an important aspect of the support hub.brussels gives; in particular helping future retailers know the different areas of Brussels to find the perfect match for their business.
Cécile is also involved in the “OpenSoon” call for projects which gives new retailers the opportunity to benefit from advice from experts, plus a subsidy up to 15000€.
