COSME: assistance for businesses
Are you an existing entrepreneur, future entrepreneur or a national, regional authority?
If you are, then you may be eligible to receive financial assistance under COSME which is the EU programme for the Competitiveness of Enterprises and SMEs. The aim of COSME is to allow SMEs to realize their full potential in today’s global economy.
COSME will help you with the following:
Access to finance
Whatever phase of your business lifecycle – creation, expansion, or business transfer – COSME will help you have easier access to guarantees, loans and equity capital.
Internationalisation and access to markets
COSME helps businesses access EU markets and beyond. You can find business and technology partners; get practical information on doing business within Europe as well as seek financing for IPR (intellectual property rights).
Improve your competitiveness
COSME supports businesses to be competitive and encourages the adoption of new business models and innovative practices
Encourage an entrepreneurial culture
Assistance to access opportunities offered by digital technologies may be found as well as general entrepreneurship education, mentoring, guidance and other support services.
