Sport represents an integral part of the lives of millions of Europeans. Support for sport builds community cohesion, grows social inclusion and leads to an enhanced sense of European identity. Sport is also a key facet of Member States and the larger European economies: the sector employs millions of European citizens and adds billions in revenue.

Promoting new initiatives for small and medium enterprises (SMEs) to acquire additional skills, abilities and new opportunities for international partnerships in this context is even more crucial.
What are our goals?

1. Mobilize business actors of the sport ecosystem
2. Create international business opportunities

4. Award successful SMEs that will have distinguished themselves during the planned activities with a dedicated Enterprise Europe Network Prize
5. Transnational visibility

Topics addressed:
