The European Enterprise Promotion Awards reward those who promote entrepreneurship and small business at the national, regional and local level. Initiatives from all EU countries, as well as Iceland, Serbia, and Turkey can take part in the competition. Since 2006, over 2,800 projects have entered the awards and together they have supported the creation of thousands of new companies.
Two of the four Enterprising Britain Award winners may also have the opportunity to be entered as the UK entries into the 2016 European Enterprise Promotion Awards.
The objectives of the awards are to:
- identify and recognise successful activities and initiatives undertaken to promote enterprise and entrepreneurship
- showcase and share examples of best entrepreneurship policies and practices
- create a greater awareness of the role entrepreneurs play in society
- encourage and inspire potential entrepreneurs.
The winners of the European Enterprise Promotion Awards are announced at an awards ceremony at the SME Assembly, which is part of European SME Week. The 2016 SME Assembly will take place in Bratislava on 23 - 25 November 2016.
