The European Agency's for SMEs (EASME) SME Instrument is not only about funding innovation in small businesses – it also offers intensive coaching and mentoring to increase the chances of companies to survive on the market and grow. 

Coaching under the SME Instrument is offered to develop organisational capabilities, leadership and management skills within the companies. It aims at enabling SMEs to cope with developing their strategy and organisation, identifying market opportunities and with attracting finance more efficiently. The SMEs can receive three days of coaching under Phase 1, and 12 days under Phase 2.
