European Market Access Programme
The Access2Europe project helps European startups enter and scale up in other EU markets by bridging key tech ecosystems. To do so, four consortium partners representing major European startup hubs have joined forces: Connect Global (Berlin, Germany), Tehnopol (Tallinn, Estonia), the French-German Chamber of Commerce (Paris, France) and Peninsula (Barcelona, Spain). Drawing on their strong experience supporting startups and corporates cross-nationally, they have designed customized programmes for startups to accelerate their entry into the respective markets. Through discovery tours and 3-month incubation programmes, entrepreneurs will benefit from introductions to local ecosystems and industry players, office space, workshops and hands-on coaching free of charge.
Access2Europe is a 1-year project awarded with the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 grant.

During an up to three-month programme in selected co-working spaces, you will benefit from coachings and curated matchmaking with corporates, experts and VCs.
Access Academy Webinars
Access Academy is a virtual programme of 1-hour sessions, with possibility to participate live to some of the events, with guests covering different aspects interesting for a prospective market entry like taxations, social security, hiring process, IP legislations etc. The selection of topics will be crowdsourced to ensure the actual needs of startuppers looking for European market entry are covered.
