Have you ever dreamed of being your own boss? Of tapping into the dynamic web and applications scene that is thriving right across Europe and beyond? Of taking your “crazy” idea and turning it into something real? If your answer is "yes” to any of those questions but have been too afraid to take a leap of faith, afraid of failure…don’t be.
Today, these startups have turned their ideas into successful businesses contributing to European innovation, growth and job creation. They have been helped along the way by both local and EU network and funding opportunities, and so can you.
The European Union is committed to strengthening the business environment for startups in Europe through the many instruments available today such as the HORIZON 2020 Programme, the Startup Europe Initiative, Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs and FIWARE Accelerator Programme.
