The Eurecan European Venture Contest, aims to identify world-class innovative companies with the potential to dramatically impact their industry and contribute to increasing European competitiveness and growth.
For the past five years, Europe Unlimited, has been running these events, and I’ve taken part in several as an expert reviewer. I also took part this year, at the EEVC 2009 event held recently in Budapest.
This year was different. Thanks to more than €100M arriving from the European Commission in December 2009, a large number of these companies actually have a chance to win funding.
