Investment Booklets
Capital exists, but it is in fact too spread out and fragmented over Europe. Europe has more potential than the United States for venture capital (as it has more savings), while Business Angels and crowdfunding can make an asset out of fragmentation. The key is to improve the accessibility to these tools, guiding entrepreneurs to capital.
Gone are the days of training scientists and engineers only to work for someone else. The range of options and opportunities to create a new business is higher than ever accompanying the rapidly evolving entrepreneurial mindset and community in Europe.
