Following yesterday's post on the manifesto put together by the Startup Club, the Startup Europe team points out that they're looking for an Entrepreneur in Residence at the Startup Team of the EU, which might be an interesting option for someone in our region who is in-between projects. The senior or young entrepreneur would participate and lead some of the Startup Europe actions, such as the type of projects found in their digital agenda.
On a more practical level it would mean working with contractors and acting as the voice and prospective of European startups in how these projects are developed. This would also require organizing meetings and preparing briefings on specific technical matters relating to web-entrepreneurship for the Commission services and Vice-president Neelie Kroes.
The Next Web's conference is kicking off, and with it is the European Commission's Tech Entrepreneur of the Year Award. What's noticible is the number of Nordic entrepreneurs up there on the list, especially Swedish entrepreneurs, who grabbed three out of the ten spots. Finland also makes an appearance through Rovio, naturally.
The list can be found here, but here's the copy-paste:
