To bring Europe back to growth and create new jobs, we need more entrepreneurs. The Entrepreneurship 2020 Action Plan is the Commission’s answer to challenges brought by the gravest economic crisis in the last 50 years. It is a blueprint for action to unleash Europe’s entrepreneurial potential, remove existing obstacles and revolutionize the culture of entrepreneurship in the EU. It aims to ease the creation of new businesses and to create a much more supportive environment for existing entrepreneurs to thrive and grow.
The Entrepreneurship 2020 Action Plan identifies three areas for immediate intervention:
- entrepreneurial education and training to support growth and business creation;
- removing existing administrative barriers and supporting entrepreneurs in crucial phases of the business lifecycle;
- reigniting the culture of entrepreneurship in Europe and nurturing the new generation of entrepreneurs.
