Jakob Kesteloot

Engineer IoT

Do you have questions regarding production connectivity? Do you need to assess the added value of connectivity for your business? 
From drafting a roadmap for digitalisation and creating a connectivity architecture straight to validating feasibility through proof of concepts, reach out to get guidance for one or more steps of your digitalisation project. Good to know: I assist both manufacturing companies and machine builders. Manufacturers get help in connecting their (heterogenous) machine park, while machine builders receive guidance on how to add connectivity solutions to their machines.

Work experience  

In 2019, I started my professional career at Sirris. As project manager Connected Manufacturing, I get the opportunity to assist companies on their way to a transparent production. Supporting companies in setting up their industry 4.0 applications with sufficient added value is what drives me to improve myself with new technologies and applications.


  • Master in Industrial Sciences (KU Leuven)
  • Postgraduate Innovative Entrepreneurship (KU Leuven)

Professional motto 

“Innovation is not driven by technology, but by the added value for businesses.”
