Consultation on Entrepreneurship 2020 Action Plan
Enterprise and industry, Small and medium enterprises (SMEs), entrepreneurship
All citizens and organisations are welcome to contribute to this consultation. Contributions are particularly sought from public administrations and private sector organizations and individuals who support entrepreneurs in starting up businesses and in helping them face challenges, particularly during the first years of life of the business, individual entrepreneurs and businesses.
Period of consultation
From 09.07.2012 to 01.10.2012
Objective of the consultation
Europe lags behind its competitors in entrepreneurial attitudes and at the same time we know that SMEs are the biggest source of new jobs and related growth. A European Entrepreneurship Action Plan is therefore needed to address areas where entrepreneurial potential can be unleashed and where key bottlenecks can be overcome and obstacles to entrepreneurial activities removed. This consultation seeks reactions to a variety of possible measures which could be brought together under this Action Plan so as to bring together the best practices for the broadest impact across Europe.
