  • Early Warning Europe

    This Project finished towards the end of 2019. ESBA has since joined a ‘successor’ called the Early Warning Europe Network in order to continue to support this very important work, during these COVID times.

    The overall objective of Early Warning Europe was to promote entrepreneurship and growth of SMEs across Europe. A key element is to create strong framework conditions for entrepreneurs and businesses across sectors that can help them face key challenges, including managing a crisis, dealing with bankruptcy and getting a second chance.
