    • Abstract:
      Enhancing entrepreneurship is one of the main goals of most governments worldwide in order to contribute to job creation and the development of national economies. European Union's Member States have the opportunity to finance their businesses to implement investment projects for development reasons, using sources of the European Structural Investment Funds (ESIF), mainly by the European Regional Development Fund. Funding is provided through state aid programs which are part of Strategic Reference Frameworks approved by the European Commission at the beginning of each programming period, while complying with Article 107 of the Treaty of the European Union as regards the implementation of competition rules in the internal market. Greece has a long tradition on designing and implementing state aid programs which provide grants to potential beneficiaries and are co-funded by national and ESIF sources. The "Extroversion - Competitiveness of enterprises II" cofunded program was part of the Ministry of Development's strategy to tackle the economic crisis by offering a way out to Greek companies, especially small and medium-sized enterprises, to expand their operations in international markets by upgrading their production process in parallel. The completion of the program offers useful conclusions regarding the implementation process and helps policy makers to identify critical parameters related to the heterogeneity of companies in terms of size, industry and region of their establishment, as well as the degree and manner of public administration's involvement, which should be seriously taken into account when designing state aid programs as instruments of public policy.
