For small firms and entrepreneurs Europe means a wide range of initiatives that help business.
Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are the source of 85 % of new jobs created in Europe and there are
23 million of them. They make up 99 % of all businesses and 9 out of 10 are microenterprises with fewer than
10 employees. The United Kingdom has 1.5 million microenterprises operating in a competitive business
environment that has helped them to take on more employees despite the financial crisis since 2008.
