Ilja Theuwissen

I’ve always been a freelance ICT consultant for various industries and organisations.

In 2009 I decided to take my own venture to the next level and founded SafeCam, to bring the next generation of CCTV solution the market.

In 2011 SafeCam landed the job of securing Belgium’s finest festivals with groundbreaking video surveillance technology. This became the first in a series of technology innovations for the Festival and Event market. Every season up to today brings new inventions.

In 2014 it became clear a new name was needed and the first employee came aboard. The Safe Group was born and we continued to innovate security and communication technology. We branched out to other markets, B2B and Governments.

Today an incredibly knowledgeable team of 13 specialists, together with a fine network of freelancers and partners, finishes the most challenging projects and continues to raise the bar of what’s technically possible. (and affordable :))
