Successful startups are not RAISEd to the top only because of their products or services, but rather due to their connections, action plans and access to important resources. However, not all early-stage startups get so lucky.

This is why 5 project consortium partners are building RAISE, a Horizon Europe project that will cover the full spectrum of needs that a seed stage startup may require and be their lighthouse throughout the whole process.

No more winning the startup lottery! Every startup will have an equal chance at success, with access to top-quality information and training. They will be given all the possible tools to grow, and finally, all the players in the EU startup ecosystem under one umbrella will be linked to help them scale up.

RAISE will develop a long-term collaboration and action plan for the establishment of a virtual interconnected space for EU start-ups to scale up, building on established pan-European associations for the most relevant dimensions of startup support (public incentives, research and innovation, private seed funding) and on dynamic ecosystems in Europe.

RAISE will focus on a 3 steps structure to help companies scale up:

  • Launch a Community of Practice through the Creation of An Interconnected Startup Space:

Establish sustainable and in-depth links between the partners and local, regional, or national ecosystems and launch a community of practice that will contribute to an interconnected space and will facilitate the growth of scale-ups in Europe.

  • Common Action Plan Development Supporting New Startup Business Models:

Design, refine and further develop a common action plan for supporting new startup business models into solid technical and conceptual frameworks at the EU and global level, from the conceptual, technical, financial, societal, and legal points of view.

  • Common Action Plan Highlighting Best Practices/Policies:

Map and promote support activities to startups conducted at the regional level across Europe and mobilise regional efforts to address relevant barriers to startups’ growth, such as the harmonisation of policies and regulations, access to talent and major research infrastructures.

RAISE-ing up startups and promoting a healthy ecosystem as well as productive entrepreneurship perfectly aligns with our partners’ main goals. By helping the European early-stage sector we are planning to act in the whole spectrum of startup support and growth. Our goal is to facilitate the growth of the early-stage sector at the pan-European level and actively contribute to the ecosystem’s flourishment.

Join our Forum to build collaboration amongst key players of the innovation ecosystem, and create a joint agenda that will contribute to the growth and scale-up of start-ups. Want to find out more about this? Write to us at info@theraise.eu.
