How to design policies addressing fast growing SMEs in Europe?
From 26 to 27 April 2007 the first INNO-Views Workshop was held in Tallinn, Estonia, with about 30 participants, ranging from policy-makers over experts from research, business support organisations and finance to successful entrepreneurs. The workshop focused on the so-called “gazelles”, i.e. fast growing companies, that are considered as a driving force for competitiveness, innovation and employment. The main aim was to better understand the driving forces and barriers for gazelles and clarify the scope for effective policy measures in support of high-growth firms.
