Help design the ePlus project

The EU’s ePlus project (set up to help Europe’s web entrepreneurs grow) just launched their “alpha version” website, and needs your help designing the site and indeed, the entire project.

Like several ‘StartUp Europe’ projects, the basic idea is to link together several ‘entrepreneur support ecosystems’, each established to help local web entrepreneurs develop their startups. Entrepreneurs supported by one of these connected ecosystems can then access services offered by all participating ecosystems, taking their startup to the next level: Europe.

ePlus have a range of services planned, from grant programs to matchmaking young researchers and web entrepreneurs, after all, entrepreneurs often need specific academic skills, while researchers often need entrepreneurs to help take research results to market.

But like any startup, they need to ensure that what they’re building is what their users need: if you are a web entrepreneur, researcher, ecosystem manager, startup mentor, investor or similar, please take this survey.

Every response will help them to prioritise what they build on this site and what they do in this project.


Keep up to date on the survey results and ePlus services as they come on line, you can subscribe to their newsletter from within the survey.

And while three ecosystems are already on board, more ecosystems are welcome – if you manage one, get in touch.

Finally, while they won’t launch social media accounts before they’ve studied the survey results, they will be communicating via the Startup Europe Twitter and Facebook accounts.

Please take the survey:
