INCLUDING SCALEUP SUMMIT ON SEPTEMBER 25-26
AT NASDAQ ENTREPRENEURIAL CENTER, SAN FRANCISCO

The European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) partners with Mind the Bridge in organizing, as part of the annual Startup Europe Comes to Silicon Valley (SEC2SV) week, a San Francisco Scaleup Summit.
