Coordinated by the European Commission, this campaign promotes enterprise across Europe in line with the Small Business Act for Europe.
European SME Week 2011 aims to:
- provide information on what the EU and national, regional and local authorities are offering as support to micro, small and medium-sized businesses;
- promote entrepreneurship so that more people, and in particular younger ones, seriously consider becoming an entrepreneur as a career option;
- give recognition to entrepreneurs for their contribution to Europe’s welfare, jobs, innovation and competitiveness.
