Inspired by the launch of The 2016 Startup Nation Scoreboard by the European Digital Forum, Neelie Kroes, special envoy for Startups in the Netherlands and¬†Sigrid Johannisse, director of StartupDelta, publish a blogpost on whether rankings matter in policymaking. And the answer is “yes”. They write: “Last year the European Digital Forum decided to benchmark all the proposed policy actions mentioned in the Manifesto. A whole movement was born and at this moment the European Digital Forum is working on a second European manifesto.”
