    InnovFin SME Guarantee

    Innovation means making new ideas come true. To materialise, these ideas need a number of supporting factors in order to be brought to life. Financing is one of such factors.

    The InnovFin SME Guarantee provides guarantees and counter-guarantees on debt financing between EUR 25 000 and EUR 7.5 million, in order to improve access to loan finance for innovative small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and small mid-caps (up to 499 employees). This facility is being rolled out through financial intermediaries, which are guaranteed or counter-guaranteed against a portion of their potential losses by the European Investment Fund (EIF).
