Pierre-Louis Christiane, KOIS alumn & INSEAD MBA class of 2018

“Starting my career as an analyst at KOIS has been a tremendous career fast-track. Empowered by visionary and ambitious leaders, I had the opportunity to quickly take responsibilities in the activities of the company. From setting up a social housing fund in Belgium to working on structuring a Development Impact Bond for refugees in host countries, I got the chance to contribute to globally premiering impact investments, in partnerships with the most relevant actors in the sector. Doing so, I quickly gained the maturity to  leapfrog my career with an MBA from a leading business school (INSEAD). KOIS’ partners supported me through my application process with the same dedication as they supported my personal development during the previous three years.”

What will happen when we are too old to take care of our disabled son?

At KOIS, the notion of impact runs deeper than business. Today, we share with you the words of our Founder, François de Borchgrave, as he tells us the story of his son, Igor.

Igor is 7 and a half years old and suffers from a disability that makes him dependent on his family. While he is taken care of today, his family, like many others in Belgium, wonder what will happen when they are no longer there to help him. It is crucial to develop new living spaces for disabled adults in Belgium, which is the drive behind our Founder’s personal project: Tous Ensemble Handicap.
