EU Opens to Small Business
The European Union opens up a one-stop-shop for Small Firms.
The European Commission has launched a free business advice website for SMEs to use hoping that small business will adopt it as their central point for contacting business support organisations throughout the EU.
Containg links to almost 600 resources the Enterprise Europe Network includes all the major SME support organisations, research institutes and innovation centres in the European Union.
The aim of the European Enterprise Network is to help small firms find access to funding, launch products and expand into other EU countries.
The EEN also includes links to upcoming business events and workshops throughout the European Union.
“The new Enterprise Europe Network is a milestone in the Commission’s integrated policy for promoting entrepreneurship and growth of small firms in Europe,”
said European Commission vice president Günter Verheugen.
“I call on all entrepreneurs in the EU and beyond to use it to the best of their needs.”
