The Startup Europe Roadshow gets underway at the Poznan University of Technology on February 27. The event will give students and young graduates the chance to meet and learn from successful entrepreneurs who have already gone ahead and built their own ICT businesses.

From case studies on successful start-ups to information on EU funding opportunities for young entrepreneurs, the day will provide both inspirational and more practical advice to encourage young people to start their own businesses.
