DisruptEuropeLive 1: featuring Thomas Koesters and Startup Heatmap Europe

On 5th May 2020, we launched the #DisruptEuropeLive startup podcast.

During the first episode, we had a great talk with Thomas Kösters from Startup Heatmap Europe

We focused on “Ecosystem Builders Fighting For Founders”

The Covid-19 pandemic has jeopardized many businesses – a recent survey in Germany showed that 70% of founders feared bankruptcy as a consequence. While many government initiatives have been announced, it will not be enough to keep the startup scene alive. It is the ecosystem builders around Europe who are now in charge of adapting to the changed circumstances and provide founders, investors and corporates with a perspective on how to continue innovating.

Thomas Koesters is building ecosystems in Europe for more than 8 years. He has set up and run numerous international startup programs, including for Microsoft Ventures in Germany and is currently investing with EIT Digital in pre-seed stage in 20 countries in CEE, Southern Europe and CEE. Besides, he is the president of the non-profit Startup Heatmap Europe, mapping Europe’s dynamic startup hubs and providing insights and training for ecosystem builders.
