Why Silicon Valley Can’t Find Europe | TechCrunch | Entrepreneurship in the World | Scoop.it
Go to Europe these days – to Berlin, London, Helsinki – drop in in on any of the regional tech confabs and you will quickly see that the European startup..
Samuel Pavin's insight:

I can but agree and really am happy to see some focus on the Baltics too.

However, Japan should also get more attention as the place is thriving - and so is Korea - more than India and China.

Really good post overall.

Rude Baguette • France's Startup Blog: This week Neelie Kroes, VP of the European Commissions and in charge of the EC Digital Agenda, addressed European entrepreneurs in a YouTube video post
Samuel Pavin's insight:

A look at Europe and the everlasting point : "make some noise you European #entrepreneurs".

Get noticed, be successful and brag about it (or, well, just make sure you are noticed for your success).

Still Kroes' bit is worth listening to and a good point made to all entrepreneurs.

European Countries with some of the hottest startups (infographic)

European Countries with some of the hottest startups (infographic) | Entrepreneurship in the World | Scoop.it

Silicon Valley gets all the attention when it comes to tech innovation, but there are some big-name companies worth recognizing that come from, yes we'll say it, "across the pond." Europe!

Samuel Pavin's insight:

A visual look (makes thins easier) at the startup scene in Europe.

Short piece though but which does bear great value in the sense that the Nordic countries do show up quite well for once.

There are big things happening there but not much noise being made so they usually fall behind the Berlin-London-Paris triangle and do not benefit from the attention they deserve.

Other than those, let me mention the Netherlands with a lot happening in amsterdam, Estonia and Lithuania as well, with an amazing Internet network available and sexy startups being born everyday.

As for France, on top of the few successful startups, I would keep an eye on the likes of Bunkr (@WebAppBunkr) and Lima (@MeetLima) and a few others I will mention later ... .

Europe looks fit overall.

A nice visual representation of the European startup scene that proves that Europeans are dynamic players. The article highlights startups from 6 cities; however several amazing startups operate in other European countries too, building great innovating services and disrupting the industries they operate in. Hopefully, they will manage to get more attention soon.

Thanks Tania! I will try to put up even more insight on European startup scenes. Being due in Lithuania in a month and in Scotland in October these are two thriving ecosystems I will try to explore further. But overall, you are right all need to get more attention which Europe as a whole could manage on a WW level by aggregating the "noise" (positive one, I mean, the social media presence and impact) and pushing the stories and successes out there. All about collaboration for success in the end.

Totally agree :) Looking forward to your updates from Scotland and Lithuania. Lots of cool startups there indeed, some pretty successful too -SkyScanner was founded in Edinburgh, if i m not mistaken-.
Yes, definitely more media attention and state support & infrastructure
