    SME and Startup

    Hello,

    We cannot provide any statistics on that since there is no single definition for Start-up so it would be difficult to say. But you can have a look at these figures based on size in terms of employment and age of funded SMEs. It may be helpful.

     

     

    Best regards

    We don't provide this data as it varies according to the topic, the cut-off date and the budget available.
