Austrian and Slovenian Entrepreneurs join CEA-PME

We are happy to announce two federation of voluntarily-associated SMEs will join the CEA-PME European Entrepreneurs Confederation: Österreichischer Gewerbeverein (ÖGV) from Austria and the Slovenian Business Club (SBC) from Slovenia, the latter joining as an Observing Member.

The ÖGV, the Austrian entrepreneurs’ association, was founded in 1839 and is the oldest representation of business interests in Austria. Its main objective is to connect entrepreneurs out of all branches and their interests above party lines and religious denomination. An efficient framing of economic activities serves as the basement for a free enterprise system and, for that reason, the ÖGV strives for free competition and a predictable political set-up to assure income, growth and freedom. The association counts 3.500 members.

The Slovenian Business Club (SBC) unites successful Slovenian SMEs who started their entrepreneurial path with their own idea or have become the heirs of their family’s businesses. The current number of members (72) and the lean organisational structure enables the Club to respond quickly and make fast decisions, which makes for a great advantage in respect to numerous Slovenian associations. Most of the entrepreneurs in the Club are well known in Slovenia and that is why the power these 72 companies represent in Slovenia greatly exceeds this number.
