Participation of Neelie Kroes at the launch of the StartUp Europe Leaders Club
On 21 March 2013, Neelie Kroes, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Digital Agenda, participated at the launch of the StartUp Europe Leaders Club, in Brussels.
Most people think of Silicon Valley in the United States when they think about technology and entrepreneurs – the European Commission wants young Europeans to be inspired by home-grown entrepreneurs, so their bright ideas start and stay in Europe.
With help from the creators of Spotify, Angry Birds, Tuenti, Skype, SeedCamp, HackFwd, London's Tech City and TheNextWeb, the Commission created a platform for star entrepreneurs to tell their stories of inspirations and frustration, to wake-up young Europeans and leaders to the potential of entrepreneurial careers.
