Startup Europe Ambassadors

Throughout the years, Startup Europe (SE) has been a collective effort of hundreds of stakeholders, movers and doers in tech and startup field. The impact of this initiative could not have been possible without the immense support provided by this community. The community that is currently taking part in the growth of Startup Europe as a bottom-up movement have been invited to be Startup Europe Ambassadors.

Startup Europe Ambassadors represent a group of key influencers in the European startup ecosystems who actively support Startup Europe activities. With this movement we will democratise the access to Startup Europe, by making it open to our partners with the goal of offering them the power of improving the initiative.

Startup Europe Ambassadors are organisations that have been selected through the evaluation of proposals of European Commission’s Horizon 2020 ICT 32 call, as well as partners of Pilot project: Start This Up! and OpenMaker.

What do Ambassadors do?

Actively contribute to the visibility of Startup Europe by acting as a key information point in their countries or by connecting the Startup Europe team with relevant stakeholders from their local startup field.

Gather feedback and provide innovative insight to the European Commission’s Startup Europe team with the objective of improving the activities of this initiative.
