InnovFin Equity provides equity investments and co-investments to or alongside funds focusing on early stage financing of enterprises operating in innovative sectors covered by Horizon 2020, located or active in the EU or Horizon 2020 Associated Countries.
In this way, InnovFin Equity supports micro, small or medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and social enterprises which play a crucial role in promoting innovation and the creation of growth and employment but which face difficulties in accessing finance.
Innovative sectors covered by Horizon 2020 include ICT, Medical technologies, biotechnologies, green technologies, nanotechnologies, as well as areas addressing societal challenges such as resource efficiency, bio economy, health and demographics, climate change. InnovFin Equity is available via four products: InnovFin Technology Transfer, InnovFin Business Angels, InnovFin Venture Capital and InnovFin Fund-of-Funds.
