A European Network helping companies in distress
Each year more than 200.000 EU businesses are facing insolvency, and 1,7 million jobs are lost in the EU due to insolvency. Moreover, the risk of bankruptcy is what Europeans fear most about setting up a new business: 43% of Europeans would not start a business if it might fail compared to just 19% in the United States.
Early Warning Europe is a network organisation that has cooperated on establishing national and/or regional Early Warning mechanisms in Poland, Spain, Italy, Greece, Luxembourg, Slovenia, Finland, Sweden, Lithuania, Turkey and India.
More countries are in the pipeline, and we cooperate with major international organisations such as the EU, OECD and World Bank on expanding the knowledge and methodology behind our work.
We coordinate a European network of experts, authorities, researchers, associations, chambers and businesses for improving framework conditions for SMEs and entrepreneurs across Europe through networking, exchange of good practice, cooperation and access to breaking-edge knowledge.
Tools and materials from this network are found in our Learning Platform on this site.
Based on European Best Practice
Early Warning Europe builds new best practice and draws on existing experience from Early Warning Denmark, TEAM U in Germany and Dyzo in Belgium showing that free and impartial guidance for companies in distress has a positive impact - not only on the survival chances and financial performance of the companies, but also on society.
The implementation of Early Warning mechanisms across Europe uses and develops European best practice, and will help save jobs, promote growth and improve public finances.

The 7th EWEMA online workshop has gathered mentors from all over Europe for another awesome peer-learning experience. The salient topics discussed were Conflict, Mediation, and Intellectual Property, including real case studies.
The first Course Run of the EWEMA Training Programme is progressing excellently. Two masterclasses were successfully conducted, and participants were impressed by the depth and currency of information presented.
The Early Warning Europe Mentor Academy is proud to announce the launch of the latest European Commission’s Communication on the SME Relief Package published on 12 September 2023. The EWEMA is specifically mentioned in this important package by the Commission.
