Startup Europe Summit

During the Startup Europe Summit in Sofia 14 to 15 of November 2018 had several different objectives. The main objective was to present concrete results of the Access2Europe project together with the partners of the consortium: CUBE (Berlin), Tehnopol (Tallinn), the French-German Chamber of Commerce AHK (Paris) and Peninsula (Barcelona). Together we had the opportunity to expose the project and success stories to many representatives of incubators and investors from Europe.

In addition besides exposing the program and learn about new initiatives, we had the opportunity to get inspired from leading tech stars and EU policymakers. Discover new funding opportunities, including programs to support startups (Startup Europe, European Innovation Council). Meeting with investors, corporates and leading enterprises. Discovering how public administration from across the region and Europe can help. This is the place to be. Finally, a Joint Declaration Reinforcing the Central and Eastern European and Western Balkans Technological Entrepreneurship Ecosystem was signed by organizations representing startups from the Central and Eastern European EU Member States and from the Western Balkans.
