We are proud to share here the highlight from our EU|BIC community. In 2021, at the top of all sectors represented by EU|BICs we see crucial support to companies active in Biotech & Life Sciences, Energy & Clean Technology and increased support to companies working in AI, Blockchain and Cyber Security. EU|BICs continue to be crucial intermediaries for startups & SMEs for attracting funding.
In 2020/2021 the community also reported having attracted more than 1.2 billion euros in capital. The great majority of our community now offer Internationalisation services (Access to markets) as a core service.
The issues we face, together with those amplified by the pandemic, need entrepreneurial innovators as crucial building blocks in driving agile responses and supporting resilient regions, fostering the transition to a digital, green, and fair future society. EU|BICs all over the world, have been supporting over 28,600 startups and a growing number of long-term sustainable SMEs to move forward. We are an essential partner in our society’s transition towards 2030.
For the EU|BIC community to rise to our future challenges we need to continue the ongoing transition to fair and sustainable regions and societies. EBN is ready to work with you and make this happen.
