Workshop on European Start-up Activities - CERIecon goes Brussels!

11 March 2019 
12.30 – 16.30

Change is needed to make cities and regions in Central Europe better places to work and live. Young entrepreneurs with brilliant ideas could contribute considerably to this change, as they are a considerable factor to enhance the innovation potential in Europe. However, a lack of entrepreneurial culture as well as inadequate training possibilities often are limiting their efforts. At the same time, countless startup initiatives are growing, making it difficult to find the suitable solution for all needs. It is important to provide the right mix of financial and non-financial support to assist entrepreneurs to create new firms.

The CERIecon project (Central Europe Regional Innovation Ecosystems Network) aims at offering young entrepreneurs a comprehensive and sustainable ecosystem – to learn, grow, exchange experiences on a European level and thus getting ready to realize their ideas.

In order to discuss European start-up activities and to present what CERIecon is doing (differently?) in this regard, a promotional event will take place in Brussels on 11 March 2019, 12:30 to 16:30 at the Representation of the State of Baden-Württemberg to the European Union, Rue Belliard 60-62, Brussels. The event is being organised by the Stuttgart Region European Office and the Lead Partner of the CERIecon project, the Board of Education for Vienna.
