As European governments turn their attentions to more growth-focused strategies, what role can entrepreneurship play in pulling Europe out of the economic crisis? What is being done at EU and member state level to support entrepreneurs and foster greater levels of entrepreneurship in Europe?
Head of Cabinet, VP Tajani, Commissioner for Industry and Entrepreneurship
What challenges do entrepreneurs in European markets face, when compared to less mature and high growth economies? Does culture play as much of a role as access to finance? Is it the case that Europeans are less entrepreneurial than their US counterparts for instance or is it in fact pointless to talk of a European entrepreneur, when member states vary so markedly in their approaches and attitudes to entrepreneurship?
Is it necessary to change perceptions of what being your own boss entails? What mechanisms exist, both regulatory and market driven, that can operate as bridges to entrepreneurship for European citizens?
This debate examined what impact increased entrepreneurship would mean for Europe from both social and economic perspectives.
