The Startup Europe Summit
Cluj-Napoca is the hosting city for this year’s Startup Europe Summit. This time around the topics are technology leadership, European ecosystem funding (more than €150 Billion in the pipeline) and growing your business. The attendees will get the opportunity to exchange ideas, challenges and success stories with numerous leading tech stars and EU policymakers like Mariya Gabriel, Commissioner for the Digital Economy and Society
**They’ll also get to discover new funding opportunities and programs to support startups. Like the EU PropTech House, co-founded by Dirk Paelinck, CEO of Workero and Idriss Goossens of Proptech Lab Belgium.
Workero is a digital service provider enabling mobility and interaction between companies and workers by offering creative workspaces in their respective office locations. It’s a simple idea that transforms idle workspaces into places where companies and workers can connect and share knowledge. Workero enables and facilitates open innovation, collaboration, and co-creation between large corporates, startups, scaleups and professional workers. Its app was developed in-house by Thierry Vermeiren, COO and his team. The Workero app enables you to connect with companies and workers, book your office or coworking desk and plan your travel itinerary on the go.
It is due to our commitment to stimulating innovation in the European Real Estate Market, that we were able to create the EU Proptech House. Its mission is to support a sustainable European PropTech market and to create a positive impact on the European living environment and beyond.
To achieve that mission we strive to scale up cross-border collaborations, to standardise the European PropTech markets, to create a legal framework adapted to PropTech, to foster innovation in Real Estate and to facilitate access to funding.
We couldn’t have done this on our own, we joined forces with Finnova Foundation and its General Director Juan Manuel Revuelta. That collaboration also allowed us to create the Proptech Startup Europe Awards.
The PropTech Europe StartUP Awards 2018 are currently in the judging phase, the Pitching Event is scheduled for May 6th, 2019 in Brussels: participants will get the opportunity to pitch to leading tech innovators and members of the European Commission. The official Ceremony of the Proptech StartUP Europe Awards will be at MIPIM PropTech Europe, Paris (July 1st & 2nd 2019), by Mr. Isidro Laso, Head of StartUp Europe, European Commission by Professor Revuelta and by Dirk Paelinck.
