Europe is a major actor in Silicon Valley. More than any other region in the world, Europe enjoys strong ties to the Bay Area through people, capital, and business. This report serves as our effort to combine the various research we have done working in and around the European Innovation ecosystem in Silicon Valley in each of its facets, i.e. corporates, startups, investors and institutions. Our data show that Europe plays a strong role in Silicon Valley.
Created and organized by Mind the Bridge and co-organized with EIT Digital with the support of the European Commission and European Parliament, European Innovation Day is the Digital Europe Conference in Silicon Valley.
SEP Scaleup Summits are highly curated, invitation only, matching activities where international corporates, investors and scaleups operating in specific verticals can do business and spot technology trends.
