Description

Erasmus Centre for Entrepreneurship (ECE) and RSM partnered with a selection of esteemed academic contributors to map the landscape around Europe's drivers of innovation and growth.

Launched last year, the European ScaleUp Monitor sought to map the landscape around Europe’s drivers of innovation and growth. To accomplish this, experts at Erasmus Centre for Entrepreneurship (ECE) and RSM, partnered with a selection of esteemed academic contributors: Bocconi4Innovation, Cambridge University, Carbon Equity, Erasmus School of Economics, Unknown Group, Vlerick Business School, and Startupbusiness.it. Prof. Dr. Justin Jansen, Academic Director of Erasmus Centre for Entrepreneurship and Professor of Corporate Entrepreneurship at RSM, concludes that: “This year’s monitor indicates that funding of scaleups has increased dramatically, yet we recommend taking a holistic, ecosystem approach to assess and improve all building blocks in order to strengthen the context in which scaleups can prosper in the long term.”
