John Perry T.D., Minister of State for Small Businesses will present the certificates to the recipients on the day.
The European SME Week 2012 take place from October 15-21 throughout Europe and is coordinated by the European Commission. We take great pride in our clients and we will be participating in the SME event to honour a selection of our recently certified clients. The European SME campaign week promotes enterprise across Europe in line with the Small Business Act for Europe, with activities occurring in over 37 countries.
The aim of the campaign is to:

- promote entrepreneurship so that more people, and in particular younger ones, seriously consider becoming an entrepreneur as a career option;
- give recognition to entrepreneurs for their contribution to Europe's welfare, jobs, innovation and competitiveness.
