From February 2014, events started taking place across Europe to encourage students and young graduates to start new ICT companies. The Startup Europe Roadshow will highlight success stories of young European entrepreneurs and will give practical advices on how to start and grow a business. It will help foster a more entrepreneurial spirit and culture in Europe, showing young ICT graduates the opportunities and rewards starting a business can bring.

Ten workshops will run in ten major cities across Europe (Poznan, Paris, Berlin, Olomouc, Athens, London, Madrid, Bucharest, Lisbon, and Budapest) with young graduates and potential entrepreneurs. Participants will interact and exchange ideas with successful young entrepreneurs, who will act as guides and role models. Potential ICT entrepreneurs will gain advice and mentoring to help them start on their entrepreneurial journey.

The roadshow will be managed by the European Young Innovator's Forum (EYIF). Events will take place until September 2014.
