‘Secrets of Success’, the biennial brochure that celebrates entrepreneurial successes across Europe and COSME countries, is back with another cohort of innovative entrepreneurs.
The latest edition investigates the journeys that entrepreneurs from across Europe have taken, discovering their motivation, and recording their struggles along the way. In ‘Secrets of Success’ we showcase small and medium-sized enterprises in the European Members States and countries in COSME, Europe’s programme for small and medium-sized enterprises. The entrepreneurs come from wide-ranging sectors, and bring a great variety of experiences to this year’s edition. Despite their differences, they all share the following two values: ‘Learning from Failure’ and ‘Building your Best Team’. Through both struggles and successes, these entrepreneurs are examples of persistence, and highlight the benefits of connecting, sharing and innovating.
Read this year’s edition to learn from these entrepreneurs and allow their stories to inspire you on your own entrepreneurial journey.
Ideas from Europe are coming back to the SME Assembly, but this time with their semi-finals. During the SME Assembly on November 22, innovative entrepreneurs from across EU Member States will pitch their ideas for solutions to Global Challenges, with the aim of putting visionary entrepreneurs and their ideas under a European spotlight. After pitching the international jury will select the nine best innovators to compete in the finals in April 2018 in The Netherlands. The tenth finalist will be chosen via public vote, so be sure to attend the session at the Assembly or join us via the livestream to ensure your vote counts!
How does Ideas from Europe work?
Ideas from Europe is an independent foundation that believes in finding already existing solutions for current global challenges. How are these solutions found? Ideas from Europe looks across all the European Member States and organises national events and competitions to help select one representative per Member State. Once chosen these national winners go on to compete at the semi-finals, which will be held at the SME Assembly in Tallinn this year.
