With an interdisciplinary approach, this book elaborates and discusses the strategic, regulatory and economic scenario that the sponsorship of a European Digital Single Market has been generating for small- and medium-sized companies (SMEs).

Encompassing expert innovative analysis of the regulatory framework, economic dynamics and organizational processes, SMEs in the Digital Era highlights the effects these have and the complex process through which SMEs can enter and successfully compete in the digital market. With contributions from international scholars, this insightful book takes a deep dive into the current most relevant debates taking place in management, economics and business law using original evidence from a variety of fields and countries. Chapters offer a fresh look at the new policies and regulatory tools required to meet the challenges of digitalization, reflecting on the effects on employment, competition and organizational processes, and how imbalances can impact the future of the technological revolution.

Providing insights into the most advanced and recent research on digital markets, this will be an excellent resource for academics, practitioners, managers and policymakers in fields ranging from organization theory and organizational behaviour to strategy, economic analysis as well as economics and business law.
Critical Acclaim
‘The necessary digitalisation of small- and medium-sized companies in the single digital market of the EU leads them into a risky and disruptive interaction with the internet giants and widens the wage gap between the high and the low skilled. This highly recommended and pioneering book provides comprehensive insights into these and related issues and the legal and economic policy responses in the EUEuropean Union.’
– Hans-Bernd Schäfer, Bucerius Law School, Germany

‘The digital revolution is transforming economic and social relationships at a furious pace, creating exciting new opportunities but, of course, ubiquitous challenges. The potential for SMEs to be a vibrant source of growth and innovation is clear, and yet they are ostensibly falling short in the process. This excellent book offers insights as to the impact of the digital revolution on SMEs as well as means for them to discover their potential in a truly-integrated European economy.’
– Michael G. Plummer, Johns Hopkins University, SAIS Europe
