31 organisations hosting 20 events to date and more to come

Invest Europe, the association representing Europe’s private equity, venture capital and infrastructure sectors, has once again joined forces with policymakers, the investment industry, policy–focused organisations and entrepreneurs to host Invest Week 2017.

Supported by the Estonian Presidency of the Council of the European Union, Invest Week 2017 will focus on how Europeans can work together to create a brighter future through investment and innovation. A variety of events throughout the week will look at the role of investment in stimulating sustainable economic growth. 

Michael Collins, CEO, Invest Europe comments:

“Europe is a global standard bearer for sustainable investment and has an increasingly powerful entrepreneurship and innovation culture. With 31 organisations spanning finance, pensions, insurance and entrepreneurship involved, Invest Week exemplifies the cross-border, collaborative approach that makes Europe a special place to invest and build businesses.

"Invest Europe is proud to once again lead the organisation of Invest Week, which this year has secured the backing of the Estonian Presidency, the European Investment Bank, the European Investment Fund and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development. We look forward to a packed agenda sharing ideas to help the EU meet its sustainable investment goals.”
