The services delivered are directed towards mature tech-ready SMEs/small midcaps who are interested in accessing financial instruments in order to carry out technological investment or investments related to achieving objectives set under the Green Deal. SMEs have access consultants from our pool which will mediate access to the following finance instruments:
- Public grant schemes delivered through ESI/ERDF in Romania (Regional Operational Program & POCIDIF 2021-2027) and the Recovery&Resilience Facility for Romania (PNRR);
- Change sustaining financing under Invest EU and the Just Transition Mechanism.
- Prefered subsidized loan schemes such as the Direct Financing Framework for SMEs (EBRD) , EFSI/COSME, IMM Invest (Gov. of Romania)
Complementary actions for credit access are available to facilitate access to preferential financing in cooperation with credit institutions. ROI and time-to-market evaluations will be carried out in order to identify efficient financing alternatives to public grants.
Partnerships with 2 major banks facilitate credit access for technological investment (EBRD, Banca Transilvania), as well as with BCR Social Finance (Erste Group) for training investment under a program already carried out for access to digital training.
