Enterprise: Financing SMEs
Access to risk capital is very important for innovation and competitivity in Europe and often European financial institutions and markets are not able to respond sufficiently to the needs of small and medium sizes enterprises (SMEs), notably at the start of a business campaign. Under the general framework of the Lisbon Strategy, the European Commission will present, on 30/06/2006, a new approach aimed at creating favourable conditions to help investments in the crucial start-up phase for innovative enterprises. In order to illustrate this subject, the European Commission's audiovisual service is preparing an infoclip which will contain footage illustrating the following subjects:
- DG Enterprise, civil servants from the unit responsible for financial questions on SMEs, Brussels;
- Information seminar on financial help for SMEs, Wallonia, Belgium
- Steps taken by a young entrepreneur setting up an SME and looking for financial partnership, Wallonia, Belgium
- An SME which has been awarded a loan with a counter guarantee of 50% from the European Investment Funds, Schaerbeek , Brussels, Belgium SHOTLIST
