Broadening access to finance for innovative companies, start-ups and other unlisted firms, including SMEs, is at the heart of the Capital Markets Union Action Plan. On average around 60% of start-ups survive the first three years of activity, and those that do contribute disproportionately to job creation. Young firms account for an average of only 17% of employment, but they create 42% of new jobs. Therefore, the success of these firms is crucial to the future of jobs and economic growth in Europe.
