Startup Europe Week 2018 opens registration for co-organisers
Startup Europe Week is the largest multi-event of its kind for startups in Europe and the third edition will be held 5th-9th March 2018. Its goal is to inform entrepreneurs of the support and resources available at a city and regional level.
Startup Europe Week, promoted by the European Commission and Startup Europe, aims to showcase the support available to entrepreneurs on a city and regional level. 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. For this reason, taking a local perspective is crucial to supporting entrepreneurs and startups in Europe.
In 2017, #SEW17 saw over 280 co-organisers organize hundreds of events in over 40 countries across Europe. The week was launched in Brussels with the Vice President of the European Commission, and as a grassroots movement achieved over 18 million impressions on social media and more than 100 thousand participants across all events.
In 2018, #SEW18 will be held between 5th-9th March and will expand to other global continents. Registration is now open for individuals to apply to co-organise a single event or multiple events in their local city or region.
A typical event aims to:
- Inform local entrepreneurs of the support available: via meetups, talks and workshops
- Connect all players in the local startup ecosystem: network between city and regional governments, accelerators, incubators, investors, corporates, media, universities and entrepreneurs
- Showcase what other regions in Europe are doing: to see what can be leveraged locally
