SME EnterPRIZE’s Vodcasts

How can we promote a culture of sustainability and responsible business models among European SMEs? Where do we stand, and what can be done to boost their sustainable transition?

We are answering these questions thanks to the contributions by members of our Scientific Committee: from the concepts of impact investing and clusters to Sustainable Development Goals and the findings of Bocconi University’s White Paper, their voices guide us through some of the key issues to be addressed to promote more environmentally and socially responsible businesses in our continent.
