About Us

Welcome to the Startup Europe Club

The place to find information, opportunities and resources on nearly every aspect of the startup world.

Whatever your involvement in startups: as an entrepreneur, an investor, an ecosystem builder, or just someone curious to find out more, the Startup Europe Club offers trusted information and support on topics ranging from funding and scaling up, to investment opportunities and networking.

STARTUP EUROPE

Created in 2011, Startup Europe has the mission to support the digital single market by building a healthy ecosystem that allows startups across the EU to scale their businesses. Through its projects, this European Commission initiative directly supports around 60 local ecosystems, encourages startup creation and growth, and connects startups, investors, accelerators and universities. Startup Europe has also mobilised tech entrepreneurs and helps make their voices heard in EU policymaking, raising political awareness of the crucial role entrepreneurs play in creating growth.

STARTUP EUROPE SUMMIT

The Startup Europe Summit (SES) is a technology conference that brings together entrepreneurs, 

investors, academics, policymakers and major corporate players from Europe and beyond. It showcases the latest trends in entrepreneurship, innovation and ecosystems and new EU-funded initiatives designed to boost Europe’s tech and web startups. The first SES was held in Berlin in 2015.

4 editions organised | 1200 participants | 15 startups pitching | 20 side events

ENTREPRENEURIAL POLICYMAKING

Over the years, several documents have been produced to showcase the most important policy elements in tackling challenges to growth across the EU.

OUR AMBASSADORS

Advisory board

Startup Europe has long been a collective effort, with key players in the startup world contributing their time and support to ensure the initiative has the greatest possible impact.

In recognition of this, the Startup Europe ambassadors were selected through the European Commission’s H2020 Startup Europe calls.

 

The ambassadors contribute to the initiative by:

  • Spreading information about Startup Europe in their countries
  • Connecting the Startup Europe team with relevant players in their local startup ecosystem
  • Gathering feedback and providing insight in order to improve the activities of the initiative
