Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and entrepreneurs are crucial for tracing new paths to more sustainable growth. They are the backbone of the European economy, thanks to their role in developing and diﬀusing innovation and providing employment.
SMEs generate 67% of jobs in the European Union.
Often described as the lifeblood of our societies, SMEs fail, in most cases, to receive appropriate focus from their traditional banks.
