Startup Europe Week is the largest multi-event of its kind for startups in Europe and the third edition will be held 5 – 9 March 2018. The growth hacking agency RiseTech Media is an official co-organiser and will hold 4 events to showcase the support and resources available for entrepreneurs in Limassol (5/3), Nicosia (6/3), Larnaca (7/3) and Paphos (8/3).
Startup Europe Week aims to showcase the support available to entrepreneurs on a city and regional level. Why is this necessary? Regional diversity and local policy making still play a big role in shaping European startups, from helping entrepreneurs to incorporate a company, to providing grants or taxes breaks. For this reason, taking a local perspective is crucial to supporting entrepreneurs in Europe.
In 2017, #SEW17 saw 280+ co-organisers organize hundreds of events in 40+ countries. The week of events reached 100000 entrepreneurs across Europe, and as a grassroots movement achieved 18 million+ impressions on social media.
In 2018, #SEW18 will be held between 5-9 March, with +300 events planned. SEW now has 50+ countries involved and is expanding beyond Europe to include Africa, the Middle East and Latin America. In the spirit of regional connection, #SEW18 will be launched with a joint event between two local ecosystems: Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain and Brasov, Romania.
This year, RiseTech Media is an official co-organiser and will hold four events to showcase the support and resources available for entrepreneurs in Cyprus.
