ESIF Fund-of-Funds Greece

    Date: 22 December 2016 - 01 March 2017

Logos

The new EUR 260m Fund-of-Funds programme in Greece, launched on 22 December 2016 and managed by the EIF, aims to boost entrepreneurship and create a lasting impact on local businesses, by attracting private funding to all investment stages of the local equity market, ranging from entrepreneurship steps even before the early stage start-ups up to mature expansion companies. The Fund-of-Funds will be instrumental in unlocking the equity potential in the Greek market.

The Fund-of-Funds is co-financed by the EU through Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) resources from the Operational Programme Competitiveness, Entrepreneurship and Innovation 2014-2020 and through the European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI), the heart of the Commission's Investment Plan for Europe. It is the first time that European Structural and Investment (ESI) Funds and the EFSI are combined in Greece.

Under this new programme, EIF is looking to invest in private-sector led, market-driven Venture Capital and Private Equity fund managers across Europe, focusing onto Greek companies. The new ESIF Fund-of-Funds will support technology transfer funds in Greece and will also kick-start investments into accelerator funds.
