Digital Sunrise Europe
Unique economic development programme from a private initiative - planning to create 2 Million jobs.
Europe, September 6 2012,
Economic stimulation programmes are something you would expect from government – not any more.
A group of nearly 300 independent executives, business owners, and social media consultants have joined forces to give small and medium-sized businesses in Europe an unexpected helping hand to overcome their economic challenges.
This newly formed group has done extensive research via crowdsourcing and created what they call an “alternative growth strategy”, designed to help companies grow revenue by expanding their business across Europe.
What started with a keynote presentation by Axel Schultze to the European Commission during the Digital Agenda Assembly conference in June 2012 has now taken on a life of its own. In preparation for the EC presentation, Schultze assembled a team of over 100 social media savvy volunteers to conduct research about the prevalence of social media in Europe.
Axel Schultze, the founder and leader of the DSEU initiative is planning to create 2 Million new jobs by 2016. He is preparing the organisation to support approximately 100,000 of the nearly 20 Million businesses registered in Europe.
The focus is on providing free education, strategy development materials, information events and limited free consulting through a group of over 1,000 professional social media business consultants over the next four years. The majority of the funding for this project is coming from larger enterprises, like technology and communication companies, who want to enter the European midmarket.
Businesses interested in getting inspired by the Digital Sunrise team can register on their website at http://digitalsunrise.eu/start/bizzmember/ and get access to a variety of information, strategy templates and information events.
