HISTORY
IN THE
MAKING

November Five isn’t just a name: it’s the date our brilliant adventure started. It reminds us of where we come from, what we’ve built so far, and the endless possibilities our future holds!

WE ARE

Not your average digital enabler! We are an Antwerp-born and bred, privately owned and auto-funded company. Launched in 2008, we’ve spent the past nine years growing organically from 4 to 80 team members, from execution-only to working end-to-end, from digital solutions to digital ventures.

“Your intelligence-driven,
strategy-first, digital acceleration partner

As a digital acceleration partner, we use our expertise and multidisciplinary capabilities to cocreate and grow bespoke digital solutions, streamlined operations, and special purpose ventures. We are intelligence-driven, exploring new areas for digital transformation and breakthrough innovation. We put strategy first, aggregating and developing strategic insights to accelerate our partners and venture ecosystem towards the spearhead of their industry.

OUR Leadership & MANAGEMENT

Different areas of expertise, different personalities, but the same drive and ambition. This is what connects us – and we try to impart it in all of our people, too. We aim to lead by example, inspire people and help them achieve their full potential.
We build November Five and our ventures the same way we build our solutions: working closely together in short iterations, ready to adapt to reach our goals. Together, we’ll make sure November Five, our people & ventures always stay a step ahead.
