European SMEs have demonstrated for several years that they pull European growth and that they are the backbone in Europe for innovation, investment and job creation. Unfortunately innovative SMEs are often too small or too young or less capitalized than any other companies to grow. The final impact of support service provided is similar to the objective of SME Instrument: to turn our SMEs with significant innovation activities into investors’ ready SMEs.
