Further development of the growing ecosystem for startups in the European region Tyrol - South Tyrol - Trentino - Veneto.
Startups are the engine for innovations and future developments. Based on intensive efforts during the last few years, it has now been possible to create a young supra-regional startup ecosystem. Appropriate support programmes have been created and accompany the startups. In addition, business angels and investors are becoming visible and relevant events are taking place. The term "startup" is anchored in people's minds.
Now it is our task to strengthen and sustainably establish the young startup ecosystem. The goal is to train entrepreneurs and improve access to chapters. The system should be internationally networked and offer valuable support for startups in a more developed phase. For this reason, Tyrol, South Tyrol, Treviso and Trentino, which is outside the programme area, have joined forces to implement the project, in order to take advantage of each area's strengths and develop a common, strong startup ecosystem. There is a unique opportunity to develop the European Region into a "Founders:Inside Country" on a European level. In addition to strengthening and developing already established structures, new content from world-leading startup hotspots will also be integrated.
