Europe is an amazing place to be a founder. There are so many incredible academic institutions across the continent with such a wealth of talent pouring out of them and producing amazing engineers; incredible market to go and build within. Europe is just a great place to build a team.
I think the job that European policymakers have in relation to fostering entrepreneurship is primarily in building the ambition and doing so by focusing education in the STEM subjects - we have great universities, we need to encourage more of our graduates to study science, technology, engineering and maths, particularly female ones, where we have a big opportunity to increase the quality and breadth of the pool of available talent.
While Europe has always had strong technical talent from world-class universities in cities like Munich, Paris and Stockholm, we’re now seeing entrepreneurs with an innovation mindset and commercial DNA as well.
