Avizul CESE: Europe's next leaders: the Start-up and Scale-up Initiative

Key points:

According to the key findings from a 2016 public consultation carried out by the Commission: start-ups looking to scale up still face too many regulatory and administrative barriers especially in cross-border situations, for both start-ups and scale-ups too few opportunities exist for potential partners, and accessing finance is one of the biggest barrier to scaling up.  In this Opinion, The EESC welcomes the European Commission's (EC) Start-up and Scale-up Initiative and the actions proposed which aim to remove key barriers, but stresses that not all high-growth enterprises are high-tech enterprises and that action is needed across sectors.
