Supported by the Estonian Presidency of the Council of the European Union, Invest Week 2017 will focus on how Europeans can work together to create a brighter future through investment and innovation. A variety of events throughout the week will look at the role of investment in stimulating sustainable economic growth.
ECN is one among the 31 official partners supporting Invest Week 2017 ans it is proud to host a special CrowdTuesday edition, on the 23rd of November, on present obstacles and future challenges to cross-border investing in Europe.
Europe is still lagging behind in terms of investments into SMEs, compared to the US or China. Besides the various obstacles, there are, however, many best practices and cases that are worth sharing and learning from. InvestWeek is a chance for investors, industries representatives and policymakers to come together and reflect and discuss these.
ECN’s event will mostly focus on alternative finance and crowdfunding and how could policymakers help this sector reach a true European dimension. You can view more information on CrowdTuesday here.
