Entrepreneurship and Job Creation in Europe – 28th October 2014, Brussels

08. august, 2014

Today, SMEs account for 99% of enterprise in Europe and have been identified as key drivers in achieving the growth and development needed for economic recovery. Entrepreneurs are the driving force behind these businesses and are, therefore, vital to this process. To strengthen this area, last year the EU launched its Entrepreneurship 2020 Action Plan to promote entrepreneurship in the EU28.
