Startup Europe Week is a series of events fostering entrepreneurship, organized in over 250 European regions from 1-5 February 2016 in cooperation with over 400 organizers.

The main purpose of Startup Europe Week (SEW) is to familiarize startups and future entrepreneurs with the European and local financial tools that facilitate doing business in the region. The best way to do it is to connect them with their local decision makers and let them meet in person. SEW’s role is to reinforce the local ecosystem and connect all European regions in order to help startups flourish, and ultimately provide entrepreneurs a soft-landing support in other markets.

The SEW’s Polish edition is organized in 12 Polish cities: Białystok, Bielsko-Biała, Dąbrowa Górnicza, Gdańsk, Katowice, Kraków, Płońsk, Rzeszów, Rybnik, Toruń, Warszawa, and Wrocław.

SEW Warsaw will take place on Feb 04 2016. Organized by Anna Walkowska, Eliza Kruczkowska i Kaśka Barc at Google Campus Warsaw, the conference will present the agenda of key Polish institutions supporting entrepreneurship development: The European Parliament, The Ministry of Development, The Warsaw City Hall, and The National Centre of Research and Development. The organizers – Startup Grind Warsaw and Startup Poland – together with the local ecosystem representatives will think over the regional, medium-term perspectives of the startup community growth.

The information sessions will be hosted by the local authority representatives and discuss actions supporting entrepreneurship from City Halls (grants, tax breaks, office space, and other financial tools). Moreover, the participants will learn about the European Commission grants for startups.

In parallel, the local authorities will organize open days for startups. Interested entrepreneurs will have multiple opportunities to network with their regional decision makers as well as plenty of chances to ask tough questions. The conferences will bring local entrepreneurs and investors on stage to tell stories about the most successful ways of using grants for setting up a business.

Startup Europe Week is the largest entrepreneurship event organized in Europe. It is an initiative of Startup Europe European Commission, with the support of the Committee of the regions, representing European regional and local authorities.
