Small and Medium-sized Enterprises

Small and Medium-sized Enterprises

That German has a special word – Mittelstand – for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) is an indication of their role at the core of the German economy. SMEs – defined as having a workforce of between 50 and 500 –provide more than three quarters of all jobs and eight out of ten vocational training places.
