ESN unifies national startup associations to create a common voice for European startups so that more can start, scale, and succeed in the EU.



We work with entrepreneurs, startups, and scaleups on finding funding, connecting with corporates, meeting with investors, attending events—ensuring they have access to all relevant paths to scale. dfmhdfhdmfkhdfmhdfdf



We influence policy by producing high-impact papers, serving on expert committees, and lobbying before regulators on behalf of startups, scaleups, and entrepreneurs.  d




Alongside our partners, we provide pan-European scouting services to corporations looking to innovate with startups and scaleups, as well as tailored open innovation workshops and corporate entrepreneurship toolkits.
