Fabien Pinckaers


Fabien Pinckaers was only eighteen years old when he started his first company. Today, over ten years later, he has founded and managed several new technology companies, all based on Free / Open Source software.

He originated Tiny ERP, now Open ERP, and is the director of two companies including OpenERP. In four years he has grown the OpenERP from one to sixty-five employees without loans or external fund-raising prior to raising 4 million dollars in 2010 and leading the expansion of OpenERP in over 50 countries.

He has also developed several large scale projects, such as Auction-in-Europe.com, which become the leader in the art market in Belgium. Even today people sell more art works there than on ebay.be.

He is also the founder of the LUG (Linux User Group) of Louvain-la-Neuve, and of several free projects like OpenReport, OpenStuff and Tiny Report. Educated as a civil engineer (polytechnic), he has won several IT prizes in Europe such as Wired and l’Inscene.
