EUROCITIES attends workshop on inclusive entrepreneurship

  • economy

On 9-10 March, EUROCITIES and some of our members attended a workshop organised by the OECD's Programme on Local Economic and Employment Development (LEED) and the European Commission with the aim of providing feedback on a new inclusive entrepreneurship policy guidance tool.

This online self-assessment tool will offer a learning environment for policy makers and other stakeholders, who influence inclusive entrepreneurship policies. Its self-assessment feature will enable users to reflect upon their startup and support infrastructure and culture, and will include guidance material, good practice case studies, and information on sources of further capacity-building support. OECD-LEED and the Commission have committed to keep EUROCITIES and its members involved in the finalisation of the tool and in the testing phase, foreseen for early next year.
