The seminar consisted of case studies and two separate workshops covering the different financing options available to companies and financial intermediaries. It was open to CEOs, CFOs and top management of innovative companies (from large SMEs to corporates) in the automotive, ICT, biotech and industrial sectors, as well as financial intermediaries, financial advisory organizations and industry associations.
This event also provided an excellent opportunity to network with the EIB and EIF operational teams.
