Startup Europe is an initiative of the European Commission that contributes to the Entrepreneurship 2020 Action Plan.
Startup Europe’s objectives are:
- to reinforce the links between people, business and associations who build and scale up the startup ecosystem (e.g. the Web Investors Forum, the Accelerator Assembly, the Crowdfunding Network …)
- to inspire entrepreneurs and provide role models (e.g. the Leaders Club and theirStartup Manifesto, the Startup Europe Roadshow)
- to celebrate new and innovative startups (with Tech All Stars and Europioneers), help them to expand their business (Startup Europe Partnership, ACE Acceleration Programme), and give them access to funding under Horizon 2020.
ICT startups can access support services such as advice, networking and legal assistance, from EU funded projects on the Startup Europe Hub website. We are creating as well a Dynamic Mapping of the startups ecosystem. Have a look at some great success stories in Europe.
