Make a virtual tour in this unique location
In 1930, the editorial offices of Dagblad Vooruit moved into the original building. Behind it was the printing press "Het Licht", where the socialist newspaper was printed. Today, this art deco monument with a unique design has been repurposed as the home of the Upgrade Academy as well as Ghent company Nexxworks.
Visitors will enjoy the ultimate customer experience thanks to the interplay between authentically renovated spaces and future-proof technology. The entire interior design was conceived and executed by Upgrade Estate's creative team.
Upgrade Estate will use the various presentation rooms, event areas, pitch and inspiration rooms as Upgrade Academy’s operating base, where stakeholders can meet and inspire each other, share knowledge, and innovate. The past meets the future and vice versa… A selection of the activities that the Upgrade Academy offers can be found below.
With each webinar, we bring current and relevant content into your living room.
We do not innovate on our own. Our Upgrade Estate employees involve our stakeholders in various developments.
One day a week, our employees get the chance to work on an innovative project with a team of their own choosing.
Our stakeholders can enjoy fascinating presentations on current topics. Always with room for questions and discussion.
Experienced students, trained as Upmentors, support other students in their studies.
