Startup Europe contributes to the Entrepreneurship 2020 Action Plan.
ICT startups can access support services such as advice, networking and legal assistance, from EU funded projects on the Startup Europe Club One Stop Shop.
The Startup Europe Advisory Board reviews the activities carried out by the EC Startup Europe team.
Startup Europe's objectives are:
- to reinforce the links between people, business and associations who build and scale up the startup ecosystem (e.g. the Web Investors Forum, the Accelerator Assembly, the Crowdfunding Network ...)
- to inspire entrepreneurs and provide role models (e.g. the Leaders Club and their Startup Manifesto, the Startup Europe Roadshow)
- to celebrate new and innovative startups (with Tech All Stars and Europioneers), help them to expand their business (Startup Europe Partnership, ACE Acceleration Programme), and give them access to funding under Horizon 2020.
