The European Commission is asking the National co-ordinators for the SME Week to nominate an entrepreneur who will be included in the SME Week 2012 edition of the brochure "The Secret of Success". The Commission will use the brochure to highlight both the challenges and the excitement of entrepreneurship as a career choice and thus encourage the general public to consider being self-employed as a real and attractive career option.
For the 2012 edition the theme will be "European SMEs as International Champions". The Commission is working to establish a more coherent and effective EU strategy for supporting SMEs in international markets. Currently only 25% of EU SMEs are internationally active outside their home country through trade, investment or other forms of cooperation with foreign partners and only 13% venture in one of the mentioned forms outside the EU Single Market.
To demonstrate that size is not an obstacle, the SMEs can successfully compete internationally and thus to promote international activities of SMEs, the 2012 brochure will highlight entrepreneurs who are successful in exporting their products and/or services. The achievements of these EU international champions shall provide valuable lessons and inspiration for other SMEs. Furthermore, telling fascinating stories of how they have made their business successful should serve as stimulation and role model for other European citizens aspiring to become entrepreneurs.
We therefore ask you to contact Abigail Psaila at the GRTU in order to apply if you feel you fit in the criteria proposed by the Commission.
