So whats the EIE all about?
The European Institute for Entrepreneurship (EIE) is a pioneering organization created by a group of entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs. At EIE we give particular importance to people and not just exclusively to their projects, the overall mission is to promote entrepreneurship. Therefore, here at EIE we believe in diversity: understood as a measure of freedom.
In order to realistically be diverse, our institute tries to be as transversal as possible in three different areas: Firstly age; we don’t see age as measure of capability to grasp on to ideas or projects, age doesn’t matter. Secondly; educational background. In today’s world it is often necessary to meet certain academic requirements in order to be considered a “valuable” member of society. At EIE we make no distinctions, we don’t care about your academic background. And thirdly, we consider ourselves to be transverse when it comes to projects. Any project is welcomed at our institute. As long as your startup rocks
In order to comply with the objectives of EIE, a number of cornerstone programme have been developed: EIE Accelerator (e2) & Entrepreneur (e) . Our programme utilize our strong network of mentors, our national and international partners, and a kickass list of contacts. The main objective of our “e2 programme” is to strengthen weaknesses that an Entrepreneur faces when starting-up. We like to say that our “e programme”accelerates people more than startups.
EIE is a community of over 230 founders.
Since 2013, we've funded over 70 startups.
We invest in all kinds of companies, but here are a few of the themes we care about:
