Startup Europe is an initiative of the European Commission which encourages entrepreneurship, startup creation and growth, notably in deep technology areas such as Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, High Performance Computing and Blockchain.
Startup Europe especially works to connect the local ecosystems of start-ups, including investors, accelerators, corporate networks, universities, entrepreneurs and media on the European level. For example, a mapping of the European Startup Hubs is publicly accessible, including lessons learnt and policy recommendations.
