Welcome to a new series of special episodes of Tech.eu Podcast, made in collaboration with The Next Web. Over three shows, we’ll talk to VCs, governmental organisations, and startups about the changes in the entrepreneurial ecosystem in times of crisis and the ways for founders to navigate it.

This podcast is brought to you by Data Market Services Accelerator, a European Commission-backed programme which provides training and investment opportunities to data-driven startups at no cost. DMS invites 50 startups from across Europe to receive training in key topics such as data science, GDPR, and intellectual property alongside mentorship from a consortium of industry-leading experts.
