Europe stepping up to global tech leadership

What is European Startups ?

European Startups is the definitive platform providing macro-level trends and trusted insights for data-driven policy making, supported by the European Commission. Our mission is to facilitate an informed conversation about what it takes to bring Europe's startup economy to the next level through online data, research and offline events.

Why is this important?

Europe's startup ecosystem has taken huge strides in recent years. However, the gap with hubs like Silicon Valley and China remains large. To stay relevant in tomorrow's global economy, it is critical that this gap is narrowed.

Taking Europe's startup ecosystem to the next level requires a clearer vision about European entrepreneurship and more alignment between the private sector and policy makers. And that requires a trusted and easily accessible source of intelligence that maps the whole of the EU's tech ecosystem.
