Workero CEO Dirk Paelinck and Professor Rudy Aernhoudt, Chief Economist of the European Commission, appeared on Euronews’ Business Planet to discuss the impact of Covid-19 on entrepreneurs and to introduce ESCALAR, the European Commission’s brand new and ambitious funding program.

ESCALAR & the PropTech Association

ESCALAR will more than double the investment in European startups and scale-ups at a critical time. The National PropTech Associations in Europe are key to support the exponential growth of innovative solutions in the current economic situation.

The European National PropTech Associations and PropTech House assist their members in this most ambitious EU financing mechanism ever.
