The European Small Business Alliance
The European Small Business Alliance (ESBA) is a non-party political group that represents and lobbies on behalf of small and micro businesses and the self-employed. Today, ESBA is one of the largest organisations based on a voluntary membership representing small businesses in Europe. Through its direct membership, associate membership and cooperation agreements, the Alliance now represents almost one million small businesses and covers 35 European countries. The two main pillars of ESBA’s lobbying activity are the two most pressing issues facing SMEs across Europe – access to finance and better regulation.
