Startup Europe Week Nicosia

February 9, 2017 @ 19:30 - 22:30 EET

Startup Europe Week Nicosia

The Largest Entrepreneurship Event In Europe Now In Nicosia!


Thousands Of Opportunities For Local Entrepreneurs.

Startup Europe Week has been created to include all the European regions in a startup focused program. Many global initiatives have been created to celebrate entrepreneurship. Typically, such events follow the Silicon Valley format (keynote motivational speeches, networking sessions).

But Europe is different and requires something more when it comes to starting a business. Regional diversity and local policy making play a big role in shaping European startups. European regions are key players, from helping entrepreneurs to incorporate a company, to providing grants or taxes breaks.

We invite you to attend the Startup Europe Week - Nicosia to learn about local and EU Support Programs for Entrepreneurs and to hear real stories of entrepreneurs from Cyprus, Germany and Greece who will share their stories of Failure and Perseverance!
