The “Business Bridge” call – designed to provide support to Ukrainian companies to integrate into the Single Market, will provide financial support to Ukrainian small and medium-sized companies (including displaced companies operating from within the European Union) affected by the war, and will provide them with access to services and trade fairs in the EU.

The call focuses on businesses based in Ukraine and displaced Ukrainian-registered companies currently operating from the EU. The role of the consortium to be selected is to select Ukrainian companies that can benefit from direct support, and to help them integrate into the Single Market. A special focus will be provided to support women and social economy entrepreneurs.

Available budget: €4.5 million

The call is part of the “#ReadyForEU” package of measures which also includes the call for proposals for Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs - Ukraine. This call aims at matching new entrepreneurs with Ukrainian citizenship with experienced entrepreneurs in the EU.
