European Entrepreneurship & Innovation @ Stanford Engineering (ME421)
Year Eight of Stanford Engineering's 'European Entrepreneurship' kicks off 2016 with a look at the broad variety of European startup activities here in Silicon Valley. We present quick snapshots of hardware and software teams from some of Europe's leading 'startup bridge' organizations based in San Francisco and Palo Alto. Our government speakers will also present brief overviews of their startup 'bridge' operations and models here, and of their respective innovation and entrepreneurial ecosystems at home.
