About the SPREAD2INNO Project

Addressing the innovation gap in Europe, the SPREAD2INNO Project focuses on enhancing less connected innovation ecosystems, especially in Eastern and Southern Europe. These regions often face challenges like limited funding, lack of investors, and scarce acceleration services.

The project’s strategy includes local events, providing startups with opportunities to pitch their ideas and connect with investors. By reducing disparities, SPREAD2INNO aims to enhance the quality and outreach of the less privileged innovation ecosystems, unleashing the potential of European entrepreneurship.
