An Assessment on the Sources of Finance and Business Support for EU SME’s Seeking to Internationalise in Japan

 

This Report investigates the sources of finance and business support available for European SMEs going international. Whilst relevant to the process of internationalisation in general, this study mainly focuses on Japan as a destination for business. The Report explores the business support available both at national level (case studies from a selected number of EU Member States) and at EU level. It also explores the potential support available from the central and local Japanese authorities and financing institutions.

Authors: Mr. David Smallbone, Professor of Small Business and Entrepreneurship, Kingston University, London and Mr. Itsutomo Mitsui, Professor, Graduate School of Business & Innovation, Kaetsu University
