Call for applications: ESIL Local Champions


ECN is looking for crowdfunding platforms to support the execution of the ESIL project by becoming Local Champions.

About the project

Early Stage Investing Launchpad (ESIL) is the EU-funded project aiming to establish an EU Framework for capacity building for early-stage investors in Europe. The project links investors to best companies and fellow investors, locally and internationally.  During the project’s duration (February 2017 – January 2020) a tailored programme will be designed to stimulate local investment communities among 44 countries. 

The role of Local Champions

Local Champions will act as a supporting body and help in the below-mentioned activities: 

  • Develop an action plan specifically designed to meet the needs of each country;
  • Support the action plan by providing a blend of online and offline activities, such as webinars and high-quality training;
  • Disseminate a powerful online networking and matchmaking platform;
  • Organise events and networking activities.

A small budget coming from the project is foreseen to help Local Champions in setting up and managing the activities.
