Startup Europe Week is a bottom up movement that aims to set up a meetup in every single region of Europe to inform startups about the available support and resources both at local and EU level.

The goal of the Startup Europe Week (SEW) is to bring together as many regions as possible with the valuable support from Startup Europe and the EU Committee of the Regions. The other goal of Startup Europe Week is to bring together entrepreneurs and regions, closing a gap that is very unique in Europe - the importance of local / regional support in new business creation. Over 250 regions with the support of more than 400 organizers mobilised their ecosystem to inform startups and to tap all the resources available.

You can also show your support by promoting its Thunderclap campaign via your Twitter, Facebook or Tumblr account.

A typical meetup within SEW is:

  • Focused on the regional/local level: giving information on what local or ecosystem players can do for entrepreneurs locally;
  • Based on a hands-on approach: the format and the information presented should be as pragmatic as possible;
  • A great occasion to network and obtain information local entrepreneurs cannot get from browsing online.
