    Goals / Remit

    SME Connect is a Europe-wide network and communication platform for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). SME Connect provides an organizational structure, helps members network with each other, and supports the members’ development and implementation of joint activities. All members in the SME Connect network are equal; there are no votes or majority decisions, only the individual's expression of will to engage in specific activities on the SME Connect platform. All stakeholders who want to exchange ideas not only "about" but also in cooperation with SMEs are invited to join the network. Everyone represents their own position on legislative issues. Individual companies can join the network through the European SME Business Club (ESBC) or Friends of SMEs (FoS), depending on their size.

    Main EU files targeted

    We seek to maximise the impact of SMEs on the EU level. SME Connect thereby aims to promote awareness of economic ecosystems, supply and sales chains, and the diversity of small and medium-sized enterprises.

    Our members initially represent their own positions and interests and can organize themselves with like-minded partners to start initiatives, projects or working groups.This brings to a joint cooperation and a representation of common positions while allowing independence of activities and interests.

    SME Connect members are interested in all legisation or programmes, which have an impact on them - espcially SME policies, access to finance, R&D, digitalisation, green transition, trade, internal market, health, education, entrepreneurship promotion, infrastructure etc.
