How cooperation can help businesses overcome adversity and navigate disruptions

Posted 31 May 2022

Small businesses in Europe are under more strain than ever before. The ravaging war in Ukraine – adding to a dramatic slowdown in China’s economy, the pandemic, and the climate crisis – is rocking global supply chains, affecting industries from semiconductors to food. In this period of disruption, enhancing the ability of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and start-ups to bounce back from crises is crucial for Europe's rapid recovery.

This is where the Enterprise Europe Network stands strong, helping companies overcome these difficult times.
