In February 2014, PEDAL Consulting was contracted by the European Commission to assist the implementation of the “Startup Europe Partnership” initiative, the objective of which is to bring together the best European web-based startups with large corporates in order to help them to scale up and become global champions in their respective domains.
Collaborating closely with the SEP founding members, among which Microsoft, Orange, Telefonica, BBVA and Telecom Italia, PEDAL Consulting is mainly undertaking the following activities:
- Mapping & analysing the most promising startups, significant exits and large corporates.
- Providing awareness and visibility to the initiative via press releases, SEP monitors, dedicated country reports
Assisting in other relevant research activities.
Presentation of PEDAL Consulting and Mind the Bridge from the international workshop organised by the European Commission is available here.
PEDAL Consulting has recently finalised the “Preliminary analysis of the European Startup Ecosystem” which is available here.
