EIF cooperates with a wide range of financial intermediaries (banks, guarantee institutions, private equity and venture capital funds, etc.) that offer financial products targeting SMEs and Small Mid-Caps across Europe. Please note that EIF does not provide funding or guarantees to individuals or companies directly. Please note that final funding approval lies solely with the financial intermediary.
If you are looking for a loan or a micro-loan (below € 25.000) to start-up or expand your business, you can get further information from the EIF intermediaries in your country. The financial intermediary will inform you about application requirements and loan conditions.
If you are looking for investors, you can contact the fund management companies in which EIF has invested.
