    Les pratiques d’accompagnement entrepreneurial sont destinées à combler les insuffisances stratégiques des PME. Si le profil de l’entrepreneur prédomine dans la PME, l’esprit d’entreprise relève également des spécificités locales au sens des ressources accessibles et des démarches d’accompagnement mises en oeuvre. Il est ainsi intéressant d’observer la manière dont les entrepreneurs des PME tissent des liens d’information ou de collaboration avec les structures d’accompagnement tout au long des diverses étapes de leurs projets. La recherche sur le terrain porte sur 127 entrepreneurs (ayant utilisé les dispositifs d’accompagnement des structures institutionnelles ou privées locales au-delà des phases de création) de la région Nord-Pas De Calais. Entrepreneurial accompaniment aims at coping with the strategic inadequacies of SMEs. With the SME, the entrepreneur’s profile is prominent but the entrepreneurial spirit also depends on local characteristics and notably the availability of resources and of accompaniment structures. It is also interesting to observe the way SMEs entrepreneurs are at the origin of informational and cooperation links with the accompaniement structures all along the steps of the project. The case study focuses on 127 entrepreneurs (benefiting from the accompaniment of institutional and local structures after the creation stage) in the Nord/Pasde- Calais region.
