Ben Arnouts - Participant 2018-2019

“Setting up a company in a new country while immersing yourself in a new culture is very rewarding, both on a personal and professional level.”


Ben developed and led the Asia-Pacific (APAC) operations for THEO Technologies from Singapore.


Until last year, Asia was very much an unexplored region for THEO Technologies. Considering the tremendous growth potential of the region, the opening of the APAC office and a dedicated focus on that continent was a no-brainer for the company. To make this launch a success, Ben conducted some thorough market research and developed a go-to-market strategy for Asia. Setting up a permanent office in Singapore was a key aspect of his project.

How he benefited

Ben was asked to manage the APAC office, where he was responsible for the whole end-to-end development and expansion in the region. The different stages and tasks of his Prince Albert Fund project from the company’s incorporation and market development to all the commercial activities were very challenging and enriching.

“The project pushed me to further develop my entrepreneurial skills by working independently in the Asian office and setting up everything by myself. It enabled me to use my social and soft skills more efficiently and gave me the right toolbox for my future challenges”, he says.

The company – THEO Technologies

THEO Technologies is a world-leading Video Streaming Technology company, providing products and services to media companies around the world that enable them to offer exceptional video experiences across any device.


“Ben displayed a ‘can do’ attitude, dealing with every challenge with a lot of optimism and confidence, which typically led to a positive outcome. His achievements included establishing a local entity for THEO Technologies in Singapore, initiating a partnership framework and closing strategic contracts.”
