The ecosystem has changed a lot with newcomers in the start-up and innovation world and we need to be prepared to facilitate strong connections with those agents and actors.
The start-up and innovation community deserves the most powerful and effective version of us (European Business Innovation Centres and Associate Members), so we need to meet this ambition,’’ Fanjul shares her ambitions as newly appointed President of the EBN.
EBN is a non-profit organisation serving a pan-European community of people who use innovative business as a driver for regional sustainable economic development.
EBN's initiatives include EU|BIC (European Business Innovation Centre) certification, development and distribution of quality business support programmes, facilitation and initiation of project collaborations, global networking, and advocacy for excellent business support actors.
More than 130 certified EU|BICs and 46 Associate Members in over 30 countries are part of the global EBN network, which supported over 5,200 companies with access to finance, raising in total over €609+ million in investments.
