Our Manifesto for the 2024 European Elections
We are calling to grow a competitive, innovative and sustainable Europe in the next five years through an adequate consideration of its most disruptive innovators: startups and their investors.
Europe has faced a transformative last five years. With the Green Deal and its ambitious digital policies, the EU has become a regulatory power that inspires and leads the world in its transitions. The European Union has also faced multiple crises: from a Member State exiting the Single Market, to a global pandemic and two wars at our frontiers, the construction of a solidified and united Union has never been so important to weigh on international affairs.
Europe is built upon crises, to quote Jean Monnet, one of the EU founding fathers: despite all the external challenges, the EU has managed to consistently pursue its priorities. As Europeans are faced with diminishing purchasing power, rising inequalities and climate change, the EU is doing everything in its power to ensure its citizens are the first beneficiaries of a green and digital transformation. New regulations covering everything from the digital single market, artificial intelligence, sustainable reporting and technologies have created a framework for innovative companies to develop responsibly.
“It is now time for Europe to not only be a regulator but also a leading producer of innovation to preserve its competitiveness and achieve a sustainable economic transition”
Startups and their investors play an increasingly significant role in the transformation of the European society and economy. Despite this, they don’t get the same recognition and support of their counterparts in America and Asia, which makes their development more complex and hampers their competitiveness.
This is why we call, through this Manifesto, to grow a competitive, innovative and sustainable Europe in the next five years through an adequate consideration of its most disruptive innovators: startups and their investors.
This is a call for action. No doubt that Europe will face, in the next five years, new disruptions. Let’s not be passive observers of the return of protectionism and pessimism. Europe is a continent of innovators: let’s prove it to the world!
