Project description

Connecting ecosystems and sharing opportunities

The countries of the Baltic and Visegrad regions are among the more developing EU Member States in technology and innovations. The EU-funded XEUROPE project is promoted by a consortium of carefully selected partners with a leading role in training, acceleration, events organisation and media that intends to link the two developing regions to the broader European environment. It will support 150 deep-tech start-ups to extend their experience beyond borders. The project, which will run for 26 months, will achieve a greater understanding of related opportunities and support for investment and partnership in innovations. XEUROPE will be a flagship programme that will represent a guideline on how to connect environments and share opportunities across the EU.


The X-Europe Consortium brings together leading training, acceleration, events, and media companies from across Europe. Together we will link the developing regions of the Baltics and the Visegrad region to the wider European ecosystem, rebalancing the flow of socio-economic capital. Through the delivery of training, matchmaking & promotional services X-Europe will support 150 deeptech startups and help them to internationalise, grow across borders, and into developing frontiers.

The consortium has been selected carefully to ensure that each aim can be well attained. We have chosen a leading international training organisation (Growth Tribe), a strong ecosystem builder working to connect the Visegrad region through acceleration & connecting activtities (Design Terminal). Two companies (TNW & F6S) have large databases of startups, investors and job/talent communities. Finally, 2 leading international event orgnaisations in TNW and Techchill have been selected to boost the program exposure and put ecosystem connecting activities central to the programme.

The programme will last 26 months and create positive feedback loops to ensure sustainable and mutually supportive impact on developing ecosystems and their deeptech beneficieries. After the completion of the project we expect higher levels of investment and partnership in developing regions and greater awareness of the opportunities and innovations available within the Visegrad and Baltic regions.

X-Europe will be an iconic and flagship programme creating high levels of exposure, engagement and be a leading example on how to connect ecosystems and distribute opportunties and growth across the European Union.
