Welcome2Europe and Matchmaking tour

Welcome2Europe and Matchmaking Tour are the two other integral parts of the GoGlobal programme that contribute to the enabling environment for mature start-ups with a clear thematic focus on urban mobility.

Concept

Welcome2Europe aims at hosting international start-up companies who are targeting Europe, giving them the opportunity to be introduced to investors and local hub partners. In a similar way, the Matchmaking Tour programme offers global outreach assisting start-ups who are looking to expand their activities beyond Europe.

These two packages will foster engagement between start-ups, small and medium-size enterprises, original equipment manufacturers and suppliers. Moreover, start-ups and cities will be able to efficiently communicate in a way that needs and expectations from different European regions would be exposed. One week before the main event, preparation workshops will facilitate the selected teams to boost their future presentations and networking with potential customers.

The participation in these GoGlobal programmes will also grant start-ups to access this year’s digital edition of the Smart City Expo World Congress (SCEWC) in Barcelona, named Smart City Live 2020.
