Has Covid-19 changed how governments and the tech ecosystem interact? As Europe faces the challenge of post-Covid economic recovery, startups stand out as the fastest engine for job creation in Europe. But while governments have supported startups in unprecedented and innovative ways through Covid-19, founders still feel like some of their priorities are not being heard.
Europe's startups projected to create 1.2M jobs over the next five years - no other industry can match this engine of job growth.
European governments swiftly injected $11B to support startups through Covid-19.
Close to 65% of founders are not aware of Horizon Europe, a programme delivering up to €100B in funding and launching in 2021.
