European Digital Forum

The European Digital Forum is a think tank dedicated to empowering web entrepreneurs and growing Europe’s digital economy. It is spearheaded by the Lisbon Council and Nesta, in collaboration with the Startup Europe Partnership and the European Commission. The creation of a European Digital Forum was first called for by the Leaders Club -- an independent group of founders in the field of tech entrepreneurship – as part of the Startup Manifesto, a hard-hitting 22-point plan for entrepreneurship and innovation to power growth in the EU. Founding partners of the European Digital Forum include the European Investment Fund, Telefónica, Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria (BBVA) and Orange.
