Welcome to the ‘One Stop Shop’ for Startup Europe!
Here you will find a central meeting point for startups in Europe to access all the information they need to grow and thrive in Europe.
What is Startup Europe?
Startup Europe is an initiative of the European Commission, which falls under its priority of the ‘Digital Single Market’.
The 4 main objectives of Startup Europe are to:
- Connect people such as startups, investors, accelerators, female entrepreneurs, corporate networks, universities and #EUTechWriters through our array of networks.
The Startup Europe Map, a map which connects all startup players in the European ecosystems, is part of this.
- Connect local startup ecosystems by way of our 5 Projects (Digistart, ePlus Ecosystem, Startup Scaleup, Twist Digital and WELCOME) which are based in cities all over Europe.
We also support regional initiatives such as Startup Europe Week or Startup Europe Regions Network.
- Help startups soft-land in other markets such as Silicon Valley (for example SEC2SV: Startup Europe Comes to Silicon Valley initiative), India (for example the Startup Europe India Summit), Africa (Startup Europe Comes to Africa initiative, coming soon) and The United Arab Emirates (coming soon).
- Celebrate entrepreneurs’ success (Techallstars, Europioneeers and StartUp Europe Awards).
