The Startup City Alliance Europe (SCALE) is an important step towards creating a connected European city-to-city startup ecosystem. SCALE unites 19 European startup organisations for the benefit of startups in Europe wanting to scale not only within Europe but also to other continents around the world. SCALE helps establish a transparent European startup ecosystem that enables startups to scale to foreign markets. SCALE connects and fortifies the supportive structures that are already in place, bringing toghether European municipal governments, universities, corporates and fast growing startups (scale-ups). By generating engagement on a European scale we can work together to help startups and collaboratively enter foreign markets.
