For the first time, the Brussels-Capital Region Prize was split between two projects: Pixy and Un-Mute. Both will enjoy 3 months of free working space at Transforma BXL, and coaching with a Cluster Software external consultant.

Pixy is a familial app to better organize the family time by using gamification and enhancing collaboration among the family members. Anne Sophie Lecointre and Charlotte Neuburger are the founders of this app with which everyone gets involved in the family tasks in a most efficient and funny way.

Un-Mute, founded by Pierre Black, is the first Belgian venues production platform that uses a crowdfunding system. Local artists can organize their concerts and launch ticketing campaigns without taking any risk. If they don´t raise the amount needed, everybody gets the money back.
