The road to growth for Europe’s start-ups: financing challenges & the role of public and private capital
- Jun 28, 2018
An important consideration for the development and growth of Europe’s small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) is how to propose well-designed financing opportunities to support these companies throughout the entire duration of their business cycle. From seed and pre-seed stage and, increasingly, through to the growth and scale-up stages, solutions need to be offered whereby ideas are not only born in Europe, but raised and mature there too.
