Our structure

The structure

Capitant is part of the Capitant Group, together with Capitumni and Capiness. These three entities act independently from each other and have their own board, but they are connected. This structure allows Capitant Group to maximise cooperation and communication. A future endowment aims at being financially sustainable.

Capitant itself is represented by an umbrella organisation (Capitant Belgium) and five cities (Capitant Antwerp, Leuven, Ghent, Brussels and Liège). Capitant Belgium, that consists of a national President and five Directors, structures and puts up the strategy and roles of Capitant. Every month, the Belgium board meets with all five presidents of the respective cities while working towards Capitant’s future endeavours.

Capitumni

Another part of the Capitant Group is the Capitumni. These are alumni who were active in different Capitant cities back in the days. They work independently from Capitant but nevertheless they want to provide networking opportunities to our board members. Every year, they organise some events to meet the new board and to welcome them into Capitant’s alumni family.
