SERN – Startup Europe Region Network

SERN is a European Commission initiative that creates links between ecosystems.

It focuses on connecting people and local ecosystems, raising international awareness, and acting as a one-stop-shop to provide information for startups. Initially focused on ICT and web startups, it has recently expanded to all startups.

To do this, SERN is committed to:

  • Facilitating networking between countries
  • Mobilizing regional resources to address issues related to startup growth
