From Startup to Scale-Up: Growing Europe's Digital Economy

10/06/2016

What does it take for European companies to move from the "startup" to "scale-up" phase? Why do so many European firms remain static and what prevents them from becoming global champions and driving the growth and jobs Europe so badly needs? To answer these heated and timely questions, the European Digital Forum launches From Startup to Scale-Up: Growing Europe's Digital Economy. Aimed at contributing useful ideas to the Investment Plan for Europe put forward by European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, the policy brief analyses the places where company-growth financing breaks down in Europe and proposes a ten-point plan for fixing the European "funding escalator." The policy brief was formally launched at Startup Europe Summit 2016 in Berlin at a high-level panel of leading venture capitalists.
