The story of the founders of Doowings

This is Gilles Dupont and I in 2010 while we were studying our master's degree in Madrid.☀️

We would sit on the benches of our university or go for tapas together just to dream about the business we would build together.

We had no clue of where or how to start.

When we moved to Belgium in 2011, we both got jobs and we'd call each other during lunch time to plan and figure out how to find enough time & means to build our own company.

It took courage and many mistakes. Gilles first became a freelancer and then helped me launch our first company. After 3 years, we weren't able to keep it afloat, which was too big of a hit for us.

Entrepreneurship wasn't as easy as we thought.

We still needed experience to grow and carve our path.

That's why we cannot be more grateful for our journey, for the jobs we've had, for the people we've met along the way, and for all the managers, colleagues and family who trusted us.

Today, we're proud of what we're building at Doowings. Growing our team to 5 might not seem much to many; but to us, it means the world.

Because we are where we dreamed to be more than 10 years ago.

Instead of calling each other during lunch time, we now go for walks as we continue to plan for the future.

We have found enough time & means to continue building our dreams.

And that, in itself, is a dream come true. ✨
