The European SME Week 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.

Coordinated by the European Commission, this campaign promotes enterprise across Europe in line with the Small Business Act for Europe.

Close to 1,500 events were held across Europe in 2012
