News: Towards a more integrated Startups market in Europe


Andrus Asip, Vicepresident of the Eoropean Commission has highlighted at Startup Europe Week 2017 launch event in Brussels, Belgium, the importance of a more integrated market in Europe.

From my perspective few points has to be considered in order to have more integration in the Startup market and entrepreneurship in Europe:

– Digital single market

– European Startup & Entrepreneurship statutes for a consolidated framework, harmonizing taxes, administrative procedires, etc. In order to avoid competitive advantages across countries; as well as providing social recognition to the entrepreneurs role on society and compensations for the risk assumed – basic income, for example

– Stimulating cross border startup & project development, including funding, alternative funding and crowdfounding
