“The High-level EU Cluster Mission to the US was a great opportunity to understand how the innovation ecosystem works there. We had an opportunity to exchange experiences with different kind of entities, from business support institutions, through R&D institutions, up to the VC ecosystem. It was a fruitful set of C2C matchmaking meetings and direct visits at local institutions.
We came back with promising contacts and knowledge about the wide range of services offered by the US organisations what let us develop further cooperation. As an ICT cluster we are very satisfied that we confirmed during this meetings that there is a need for better collaboration between the US business environment and the European ICT sector as well as we get concrete tools to make this collaboration possible.”Marcin Paradowski, ECDF mKlaster, Poland
