As the region’s entrepreneurship ecosystem gradually frees up more capital for young and growing enterprises it needs to take a more critical look at its entrepreneurs’ and investors’ specific needs to enhance investment conditions.
Mediterranean Start-up Meeting will gather entrepreneurs, investors, and support institutions from key emerging start-ups ecosystems across the Europe and the Mediterranean region.
Seasoned entrepreneurs, investors, and experts will gather on the eastern shores of the Mediterranean to share experiences, insights, techniques, methods, and know-how, dishing out how-toss for newcomers, dos-and-don’ts for the up and coming, and inspiration for the rest.
