ICT and web entrepreneurs have an enormous, recognised yet untapped potential of boosting the digital economy and transforming today’s society. Top job creators, key in the economic recovery, they deserve a favourable environment to develop innovative ideas starting up and flourish in Europe.

This workshop will take us further into discussion, brainstorming, development and validation of concrete measures to support European entrepreneurs. The conclusions of the previous editions of the Digital Agenda Assembly served to identify the needs of the ICT and web entrepreneurs. This year’s event gains a new context aligned with the work done within the web entrepreneurs' action plan, as we are moving from identifying needs to celebrating entrepreneurship and validating concrete new actions, undertaken by both entrepreneurs and stakeholders supporting them, including actors from accelerators, venture capitalist and crowdfunding networks. The event will be organised in collaboration with the Irish National Development and Research Centre (NDRC).
