Small businesses - big ambitions: The EU Open for Business campaign aims to increase the use of the services and tools for SMEs, start-ups and scale-ups provided at EU level, by promoting local networks and info access points.This year, the campaign focuses on entrepreneurs from Austria and Germany that were supported by the Enterprise Europe Network in their ambition to access finance, find new business partners or expand to new markets.

As part of the campaign, the European IP Helpdesk team will contribute to three Info Days: Join us in Berlin, Vienna or Lübeck for a detailed view of the various EU programmes available to small and medium-sized enterprises and unique access to representatives from the European Commission, national experts and business intermediaries. Receive first-hand information on how to access finance for SMEs, find suitable business partners and help enterprises expand to new markets.

The EU Open for Business campaign has already promoted Single Market opportunities for SMEs in 20 EU Member States since 2015. Over the last two years, the  Info Days brought together participants from 379 SME support organisations and more than 100 Enterprise Europe Network advisers and high-level EU experts.
