European Commission Programs for Entrepreneurs

Powered by European Commission

The session will showcase some of the programs developed by the European Commission to support entrepreneurship and small businesses. It will focus on the Enterprise Europe Network, a support network for SMEs and entrepreneurs with international ambitions. Learn what are the main features of the network, as well the broad range of services it provides for grow-oriented SMEs will be briefly reviewed.

The Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs program will also be introduced: it offers the opportunity to work alongside an experienced entrepreneur in another participating country while strengthening the skills needed to develop a business.

Various lessons to be learned from those entrepreneurship/SMEs support actions will be addressed, notably from a policy perspective.
