EC VP Ansip will launch Startup Europe Week in Brussels, 6th Feb
We are pleased to announce that Commissioner Ansip will launch Startup Europe Week in Brussels on 6th February, the first day of Startup Europe Week (6th- 10th February).
Startup Europe Week is an initiative implemented by SEW and promoted by the European Commission and Startup Europe.
Regional diversity and local policy making still play a big role in shaping European startups. From helping entrepreneurs to incorporate a company, to providing grants or taxes breaks, European regions are key players.
This is exactly why SEW activities focus on the support and initiatives for startups on a regional and city level, in hundreds of cities all over Europe.
#SEW17 will this year involve more than 40 countries, with over 280 co-organisers planning events.
These exciting events will be kicked off with a launch event in Brussels, with EC VP Andrus Ansip.
