Who we are

Ideas from Europe is an independent foundation that facilitates the joint development of solutions to global challenges.

We believe that it is not about the scaling of one idea to become the next billion dollar company.

It’s about working together (entrepreneurs, investors, businesses, scientists, citizens and governments) towards a shared purpose.

It’s about new market design. Purpose driven innovation.

Value Track Methodology

Most solutions to our global challenges are already out there. The impact of the solutions strongly depends on the context in which they need to be scaled. This context is often, certainly in the case of social challenges, complex and not transparent.

In order to get a clear understanding of this context, an early engagement of stakeholders (citizens, start- and scale-ups, regulators, scientists and so on) is essential.

Their different perspectives on the ideas, the constraints and opportunities give valuable insights about the conditions under which ideas with social and economic impact can scale.

Once the ideas have been scouted via the EU-wide search, Ideas from Europe uses the Value Development Track-methodology to unlock the potential of ideas worth doing, and benefit from the power of collective intelligence and collaboration of stakeholders:

  1. Validation of ideas; alignment between global challenge, pending market-need and evidence of
    solutions
  2. Validation of the route; constraints and opportunities
  3. Validation of the scaling-up; systematic approach of mapping connections and actions

We are building a platform to support the Value Development Tracks.
