The EU4Digital Facility will hold a soft-launch event on 9 December for its ICT Innovation EaP startup ecosystem platform. The event will showcase how the platform can be used and what benefits it brings to potential users, as well as inviting feedback for final improvements.
As a result of efforts by the EU4Digital ICT Innovation stream and EU technical implementers Dealroom.co, an initial version of the EaP startup ecosystem platform has been developed, based on best EU practices such as the EuropeanStartups platform. This adaptive map will provide macro-level trends and trusted insights for data-driven policymaking for startup ecosystem development in the EaP countries.
During the event, the initial version of the platform will be presented in detail by the partners, who will introduce how to navigate the platform and how to use the information, as well as benefits for startup ecosystem players and regional development. The event will be structured as follows:
- Presentation of EaP startup ecosystem platform and key functionalities
- Presentation of key use cases and benefits of the platform
- Collaboration on promotional activities of the platform
- Q&A session
This practical session will gather representatives of business associations and networks, local organisations providing access to finance, ministries and agencies coordinating the development of the innovation ecosystem and other actors from the Eastern partner countries. The participants are encouraged to participate actively, as well as share their feedback on the platform.
If you are interested in participating, please contact ICT Innovation team members Eimantas Tatarunas (Eimantas.Tatarunas@lt.ey.com) or Simona Petrikaite (Simona.Petrikaite@lt.ey.com). Registration for the target audience is open until 8 December.
