You are invited!
We will kick off the FIRES project during the first week of September 2015. The event takes place in the heart of Europe’s Entrepreneurial Society: Berlin. We meet at Adlershof, one of Germany’s leading Science and Technology Parks. On September 4th we present our project to invited guests, interested stakeholders and the public. You are most welcome to join us on September 4th for any part of our program!
Limited seats available and registration is mandatory
In the afternoon we have programmed an interactive panel discussion in which several of our distinguished guests will share their view on how to best support startup firms, how to grow them into global players and maintain an entrepreneurial spirit and finally how the EU currently shapes policy to support them. Among our distinguished guests, Hardy-Rudolf Schmitz (WISTA-management), Ken Krull (Quatere Foundry), Sissel Hansen (Startup Guide) and Olaf-Gerd Gemein (FIWARE accelerators) will contribute their views on supporting startup activity, Jack Harding (eSilicon)and Birgitta Stymne Göransson (Medivir AB) will share their experience on growing an entrepreneurial business into a global player and Richard Kühnel (European Commission) will elaborate on how industrial policy in the EU is made. Join this important discussion and share your thoughts with us.
