The European Commission sees entrepreneurship as acting upon opportunities and ideas and transforming them into value for others, which can be financial, cultural, or social. Our entrepreneurship policy aims to support companies, in particular SMEs, throughout their life cycle, promoting entrepreneurial education at all levels, as well as reaching out and encouraging specific groups with entrepreneurial potential.
How we support entrepreneurship
Supporting EU citizens
We improve the entrepreneurial capacity of European citizens and organizations by fostering entrepreneurial learning and the entrepreneurial mindset as promoted by the European Entrepreneurship Competence Framework (EntreComp).
