The Commission has now started to shape the European start-up policy by launching a public consultation on improving the environment for European start-ups and fast growing firms.
The ideas and thoughts during the consultation will be used to prepare new legislation. Future measures will cover businesses from the creation of a start-up until the Scale-up phase, when successful startup companies expand, and even until the Exit phase, which includes a successful sale of a business, or a merger with another business.
This is a unique opportunity for entrepreneurs and various industries to lobby for the creation of practical legal rules at both EU and Member State level to address start-ups and their needs throughout their life cycle.
It is now the ideal time for all those interested and affected to let their voice be heard and shape the future European start-up policy.
The consultations have already started, with the deadline set on 31 July 2016.
