Call Details

Work Programme : LEIT - Leadership in enabling and industrial technologies
Call Identifier : ICT-32-2017: Startup Europe for Growth and Innovation Radar
Call Type : General International Cooperation Call
Call Description : In Europe too many promising high tech start-ups or innovative SMEs do not manage to grow and scale up at pan-European or international level.
The tendency is that they either remain within a restricted national market or, if they manage to emerge, are often bought while they are still too small, thus failing to become full actors on the international scene and to create a sound ecosystem around their success. Beyond this, turning research results with high innovation potential into viable products and services, bringing them to the market at European or even global level remains a big challenge.
Actions should support the expansion of startups on a pan-European and international level .

Facilitating financing and improving the liquidity for European investments in fast growing ICT startups and scaleups, increasing their chances for a successful exit. Activities should support networking for corporates, help EU and international investors to gather and improve knowledge of opportunities for investing in digital sectors as well as stimulating financing through European stock markets, preparing companies for investment, enlarging the pool of investors and analysts with deeper understanding of market trends and business models in digital sectors.
