European Market Access Programme
The Access2Europe project helps European startups enter and scale up in other EU markets by bridging key tech ecosystems. In order to do so, four consortium partners representing major European startup hubs have joined forces: CUBE (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.
