Session overview

The dynamics of SMEs and entrepreneurship is a key underpinning for productivity enhancement and inclusive growth. SMEs that grow, in terms of employees, turnover profitability or market share, can have a considerable impact on employment creation, innovation, productivity growth and the competitiveness of national and sub-national economies, as well as contribute to raising wage and income levels.

Scaling up may be sought following the start-up phase, but also at other moments in the life of a firm, for example to satisfy a major increase in demand, strengthen a competitive position, or seize new opportunities in markets.

During this webinar we will explore how SMEs can achieve high growth, what support is available to them, and how to maintain competitive advantage and thrive/grow.
