Europe has some great places to found a startup - from Barcelona, to Hamburg and Berlin, from Paris to London. It also has some regulatory nightmares to offer: founders face barriers not only from the country in which they launch their company, but also from 28 EU member states (with varying ideas on how to protect customer data, compete with established industries or conduct financial transactions). Founders of a diverse range of German Startups discuss the possibilities and potential hurdles to making it in Europe.
