Talent, imagination and innovation https://gdo.com/startup/2017/03/23/talent-imagination-and-innovation-helping-europes-tech-startups-to-succeed/ https://gdo.com/startup/2017/03/23/talent-imagination-and-innovation-helping-europes-tech-startups-to-succeed/#respond Thu, 23 Mar 2017 17:32:24 +0000 http://gdo.com/startup/?p=326 One year ago, a week’s worth of events was organised across Europe to bring together tech entrepreneurs with some of our many regions; with potential partners, collaborators and mentors.
It was called Startup Europe Week. It was the largest ever multi-event of its kind for startups, certainly in Europe.

Now, to build on last year’s pioneering success, we are doing it again.

Throughout this week across Europe, a wide range of events will take place in more than 40 countries to raise awareness about resources and opportunities that are available locally for tech entrepreneurs and to help startups to create new networks and ecosystems.

Five years ago, we were just scratching the surface regarding startups with the early awareness initiatives of Startup Europe.

This programme’s main objective is to strengthen the business environment for web and ICT entrepreneurs so that their ideas and business can start and grow.

Since then, we have expanded and diversified the list of campaigns and programmes held under the Startup Europe umbrella – like the many events, around 200 expected, being held during this week.

Startup Europe After 2 Years https://gdo.com/startup/2017/03/23/startup-europe-after-2-years/ https://gdo.com/startup/2017/03/23/startup-europe-after-2-years/#respond Thu, 23 Mar 2017 17:28:50 +0000 http://gdo.com/startup/?p=323 The whole day conference ‘Startup Europe After 2 Years’ #SEA2Y took place on the 2 February at the Permanent Representation of Spain in Brussels.

The event took off at 9.30am, moment in which Gerard De Graaf, head of Directorate F at DG CONNECT, greeted the startup initiatives and their achievements and welcomed the over 200 people who attended the event.

Straight after the brief presentation the audience was blown away by the incredible startup data collected by Dealroom, StartupHubs and Nesta, just to mention a few. Don’t you worry if you couldn’t make it to the event, we have all the slides on Startup Europe Slideshare! However, you’ll be missing the interventions provided by the excellent moderator Mike Butcher, ‘Editor at Large’ at TechCrunch.

The morning session finished with some short talks on the internationalization of Startups at the European level and was capped off with a showcase of the best policy practices to support startup ecosystems across Europe. The Startup Visa was one of the hottest topics mentioned, but we also looked at more grass-roots challenges, calling for an open culture.
