Missions for Startups and Scaleups

With Soft-Landing Missions, startups and scaleups have the chance to dive into a 1-week experience in a foreign ecosystem to help them grow their business internationally. In the EU ecosystems, startups can extend their stay for up to 1-month and benefit from soft-landing and scaling support.

  • Get access and connect with the destination ecosystem network
  • Gain knowledge of the ecosystem's establishment conditions, incentives, tax and legislation
  • Receive hands-on support from local mentors
  • Participate in local events and conference


Startup and scaleup indicators: Funding to date, revenues, traction, strength of the team.

Geography: Startups and scaleups can be from any European Union country or H2020 Associated country. Participation in a Mission within the ecosystem where the startup is based at is not allowed.

Motivation: Motivation to scale to and benefit from the destination startup ecosystem.

Capacity of scaling up:
Capacity of scaling to the destination startup ecosystem.

Number of applications to the Soft-Landing Open Calls: 1) Each applicant may participate only once (1 time) in a Mission within the EU under the Startup Europe grant. Multiple participations is a disqualification factor. In case an applicant participates in more than one open call within the EU, all associated applications will be automatically excluded from the evaluation process. 2) Soft-Landing Alumni (startup/ecosystem builder) are encouraged to apply to other Missions but will not be eligible for the Startup Europe grant.
