5 ELITE in Spain Europe s most pressing challenge is to get back on the path of smart, stable and inclusive growth that will lead to new jobs, greater competitiveness in the global market place, and a wider framework for sustainable finance. SMEs play an important role, representing: 67% of total employment 3.7 trillion of value added equivalent to 28% of EU GDP 60% of total value added generated by the non-financial business sector Spanish SMEs are facing ongoing challenges in terms of access to long term financing opportunities. These prevent them from competing and growing more rapidly and are exacerbated by cultural barriers: lack of information or skills, insufficient networks and difficulties in reaching international pools of liquidity. ELITE will be an international platform deeply rooted in each domestic market, through partnership with local institution combined with the opportunity to access international support and advice. It will be a community of excellence: companies, advisors, investors and stakeholders with an interest in supporting SMEs. The larger the community, the wider the range of business and growth opportunities offered to ELITE members. A key issue for SME finance is facilitating the transition from start-up to SME to mid-cap i.e. a transition across the so-called funding escalator. As they progress through their life cycle, SMEs use a combination of financing sources including bank debt and external equity from business angels, venture capital, private equity funds and ultimately the capital markets. SMEs often find it challenging to transition from one mix of financing sources to another. Between different stages of growth, companies face financing gaps and education gaps... Various coaching programmes have also been developed at national level, most notably to prepare SMEs to access capital markets (such as the ELITE programme developed by Borsa Italiana)."
