“For startups from Eastern Europe, the easiest to go location to start would be definitely Baltics…”

- Denis, CEO of “NeoSound”


How do I know where to expand in Europe? Which country is better for me? Can I be pan-european from the start?

We’ve scouted all over Europe to find the best startups in their fields that are scaling up in multiple countries, and are full of stories and lessons to share with you.

Coming from diverse verticals, such as Blockchain, Travel Tech, Industrial IoT and Analytics, these startups have learn a lot about analysing the legal administrative, cultural and market complexities of new ecosystems.

Each young company been selected as one of the top achieving startupstaking part in Startup Lighthouse, a Startup Europe project that in 2018 organised ‘Deep Dive Weeks’ to explore Berlin, Dublin, Lisbon and the Baltics.

You’ll also get the chance to hear from two exciting speakers: Tanya Suarez (who has helped startups scale in Ireland, Spain, Netherlands and Lithuania) and Ana Barjasic (who knows what investors are looking for), plus a Q&A with the European Commission.

Scaling in Europe is hard work - but don't worry - you can talk with our startups and experts over some finger food and see if you're going to be the next one touring Europe with Startup Lighthouse!
