Besides all of our efforts on a local, regional and national level, a lot of policies that affect startups and scale-ups are often EU rules and regulations. It is therefore that the Dutch Startup Association recently joined Allied for Startups, a global network of startup organisations. One of their priorities is lobby for better EU startup policy. Think about everything that's happening around copyright, platform regulation and e-privacy. The DSA is convinced that by joining Allied for Startups, our interests are much better represented on a European level. We look forward to work with Allied for Startups and its members to make our voice heard internationally!
Moreover, recently the Europe❤Startups campaign was launched. Following the upcoming elections for the European Parliament, it is our goal to build support for an so-called 'Intergroup', focusing on startups and scale-ups. We will bring together top policy makers across the EU's Members States. Attached you will find the manifesto! There is a lot of work to be done, if YOU have ideas how we can bring this campaign to the next level, just send us an e-mail ([email protected]).
