Luc Dooms

Senior Analyst

Luc holds Master’s degrees in Physics (1985) and Computer Science (1993), but started his professional career as a physics researcher at KULeuven. After leaving academia, he dove fully into ICT and acquired in-depth knowledge of software engineering, artificial intelligence, networking and network security. In 1998, he co-founded C-CURE and led the company from an innovative start-up to a notorious, trusted and reliable cybersecurity partner in the European market. In June 2010, C-CURE was acquired by telecoms giant Telenet and merged and integrated into the Telenet Solutions Division. Today, Luc uses his expertise on boards and committees and also co-invests in innovative start-ups at an early stage.

Why did you join us?

What are your hobbies, what do you do in your spare time?, theoretical physics and music

And finally, why is AGIO different from the rest?
