The Startup Nations Summits are organized annually by the Global Entrepreneurship Network (GEN). EIT Digital is proud to be one of the co-organisers of the 2017 Summit together with the Republic of Estonia, EU Commission and Dell.
The key aim of the 2017 Summit is to explore how digital disruption is changing the world. It is both startups as well as policymakers that must take advantage of digital technologies and make a difference.
"EIT Digital is thrilled to be co-organising this event," says Fabio Pianesi, Director of Research and Head of EIT Digital's ARISE Europe outreach programme. "Our team of experienced business developers and finance experts operating from 13 cities across Europe as well as from our hub in San Francisco have supported more than 200 startups to access new markets and helped them raise more than €77 million in investment since 2012. The summit is a significant step forward in our partnership with Estonia and an important opportunity to jointly opens doors for startups to European and international venture capital funds and markets. It will help company founders and CEOs get all-important chances to-meet investors and market leaders for fast-growth business opportunities."
