Founded in 2017 by Karen Boers, Rodolphe Verhaegen, and Laurent Hublet, BeCode is a nongovernmental organization created with the goal of resolving two problems affecting Belgian cities: a strong demand for digital skills and a very high unemployment rate. Simplon joined Orange, Telenet, Digital Belgium, Close the gap, and Degroof Petercam Foundation as partners of BeCode.

The target audience is primarily underrepresented people in the digital field: people with lower-level diplomas, young people, women, etc. BeCode is in Brussels and Charleroi.
