Launching the Startup Europe Map

Within the framework of the startup event of the year, Startup Europe Summit, Startup Europe, a European Commission initiative, is both proud and excited to announce the launch of the Startup Europe Map.

On our mission to network and bring together different key players of the European startup ecosystem, Startup Europe has given birth to the Startup Europe map. One of the map’s main aims is to identify everyone who plays a part in the building of the startup ecosystem. By having a space on the map, it’ll be easier for relevant stakeholders to identify accelerators, incubators, investors, corporations, universities and public administrations involved in the ecosystem. Thus, establishing contact, sharing experiences, finding funding among other European key players will be just a click away. And keep a look-out: Africa and India are on their way too!

Another great purpose of the map is to promote best practices: we aim to do so by making them public thereby facilitating their sharing and replication. The whole map will be divided by sector, which will then be further grouped according to country, support and organizations: by bringing together those who have similar interests we are confident that it will help them find different forms of aid and support.

Last February’s event, Startup Europe Week 2016, was an eye-opener: one of the main obstacles to the creation of a European ecosystem is the lack of knowledge of the support and advice available out there. We spotted many initiatives which are unknown to the greater public, including European Commission ones. This has prompted us to create the map: making the life of startups and entrepreneurs a little easier with the help of already existing initiatives as well as new ones.

Startup Europe Summit. The Policy Conference for Startups and Tech.


The Startup Europe Summit (SES) is a series of events that brings the diverse players of the tech and digital industry under one roof. The event series started in early 2015, with an inaugural summit hosted in Berlin. SES16 addresses the key technological and policy issues that impact the business arena for startups, mature tech companies and the established industry alike. In the build-up to SES16 we are creating local events in Amsterdam, Dublin Lisbon, Madrid, Milan, and Warsaw, to get a local perspective upon the frameworks regulating startups that will be addressed at SES16. During the main event in Berlin, with multiple stages and private meetings, we will produce results and form a joint opinion on the European tech ecosystem. Do join us in our efforts.
