The exclusive launch event of the Europe’s startup ecosystem mapping project is coming

The European Commission is delighted to announce the formal launch of the dynamic mapping of tech startups across Europe (www.startuphubs.eu), part of the “Startup Europe initiative”. This ambitious and unique project provides a unparalleled insight into the emerging startup ecosystem in Europe, focusing initially on 10 hubs – Berlin, Bucharest, Brussels, Helsinki, London, Madrid, Manchester, Munich, Paris, Stockholm – with a further 10 hubs to be mapped in 2015.

The event will be next September 24 simultaneously in Brussels and other 8 cities mentioned, it promises to be an insightful mix of presentations and discussions.

Speakers include:

European Commission Vice President Andrus Ansip, who is leading the Digital Single Market. Vice President Ansip will open the event and set the context in which the map is being developed and how it will support his aim to create a connected digital single market and making Europe a world leader in ICT.

Charles Armstrong, an entrepreneur and the CEO of Trampoline Systems, will then provide a comprehensive overview of the map; what it is telling us, why it is important and the value it can bring.

A panel of entrepreneurs, venture capitalists and co-working space owners will meet at the venue of each city to continue the discussion around how the dynamic map can help in the promotion and development of tech startups across Europe and their specific ecosystems.
