The ICT-33-2019 Startup Europe for Growth Call for Proposals
A budget of EUR 10 million will be distributed among ecosystems builders and leaders who want to work with other ecosystems across Europe. We are looking for organisations aiming at connecting local tech startup ecosystems and supporting cross-border activities. Among the 4-5 startups ecosystems connected by each project, at least half of them will be located in less developed ecosystems.
The project should develop a single online entry point to each one of the ecosystems and connect them to the Startup Europe one-stop-shop. Cross-border activities will include connecting tech entrepreneurs with potential investors, business partners, accessing skills, and services helping startups soft land in new international markets. Particular focus will be placed on stimulating partnerships between scaleups and corporates with a view to procurement, mergers or acquisitions. Importance will also be placed on supporting SMEs, startups and scaleups across Europe, to access public procurement opportunities across borders. Read the full text of the call.
