The SEP provides communities all around Europe with resources, connections, expertise, services and information to help them grow. SEP is a platform where the best startups meet the best corporations, with the goal of making things happen, whether that means procurement (corporates buy products and services from startups), strategic investments or acquisition/acqui-hires.
