I would like you to join me as I take you on a European Startup tour. As I am French, let’s start with France - more specifically Paris - with the aim to understand what is going on there; what the landscape looks like and most of all where would be the best place for a start up to be created, incubated, accelerated, funded and put on a sky rocket.
In future instalments we will continue the startup journey to Berlin, Copenhagen, London, Amsterdam, Madrid, Lisbon and Bucharest.
Inspired by my colleague and London-based Sophie Cohen’s blog on the startup scene in Europe, I’m excited to kick-start something similar in this part of the world, starting with my home, Singapore.
In November I spent 5 days in Dublin in the middle of arguably the largest gathering (and rowdiest, compliments of the free Guinness at the venue) of Tech-focused professionals on the planet: Web Summit. There were more people, more speaking sessions, more pitches, and more hustle and bustle than one could imagine.
