Accelerator Assembly´s meeting was a success for speakers and participants
Accelerator Assembly, the European accelerator network, held its London Meeting at Wayra UK premises on Thursday July 2nd 2015. The event took place in a full house environment, where nearly 200 accelerator representatives and other stakeholders got to know this industry-led network delivered by the Bisite Accelerator, an accelerator based in the Scientific Park of University of Salamanca, in collaboration with Startup Europe, and could also listen to top-notch speakers from the European Commission (DG Information Society and EASME, the European Agency for Small and Medium Enterprises), the European Investment Bank (EIB) and the European Investment Fund (EIF).
The speakers presented some of the EU Institutions approaches to the tech-entrepreneur business and also shared with the audience some success stories, like www.seedcamp.com or www.rovio.com. The European Commission DG Home Affairs was also present at the event.
During the meeting, attendees had the opportunity to know Accelerator Assembly’s and talk about the value added as a meeting point for European accelerators, a forum for exchange of relevant knowledge and best practices and a network that gathers the most relevant actors of the European tech entrepreneurial world.
The event was a success much appreciated by both speakers and participants. The next Accelerator Assembly event, AA Conference, will take place in Salamanca (Spain), during StartupOlé event (www.startupole.eu), on September 9th-11th.
