Country Manager - Belgium

Heetch, Brussels

Enjoy going out

Heetch Belgium team
Heetch is a ride-sharing app that has been launched in 2013. After a couple of ups and downs, Heetch pivoted as a VTC player in March 2017. In 2.5 years, Heetch has been able to become one of the 3 bigger players in France among several well-financed competitors (Uber, Kapten, Bolt). We are now expanding internationally in Belgium, Morocco, Algeria, Cameroon and Ivory Coast.

Our ambition is to become the french speaking countries ridesharing leader:
- In France 🇫🇷and Belgium 🇧🇪: become a strong number 2
We want to take 30% of the market (x3) in the next 4 years. It means that Heetch has to be able to get rides from one of its main competitors: Uber, Kapten, Bolt, while all these companies have deep financial pockets and give more bonuses to drivers and discounts to passengers.
- In French speaking countries in Africa 🇿🇦
It's a big challenge since the markets are all very different and we'll have to adapt locally to different cultures and regulation.

Our mission in Brussels? There are too many cars on the road due to car ownership and company vehicles which are pretty common. Let’s get rid of those cars and offer a friendly ride-sharing platform !
