An information session will be organised on July 10, 2014, by the BpiFrace (27-31 avenue du Général leclerc, 94710 Maison-Alfort, Ecole vétérinaire metro station, line 8).

This half-day information session is aimed at informing all stakeholders working with SMEs of the tools that the EU Comission has made available in France for financing SMEs along the commercialization and industrialisation phases of innovation programmes, for example after a research and development phase supported by public funds.

The session will clarify the procedures governing access to fundings available for SMEs in France:
– Methods and background of financing innovation through debt-finance, loans supported by the EU Commission and the European Investment Fund (EIF) under risk finance with two examples of loans in France;
– seed capital and risk capital: jobs, processes, construction of an application and guidelines along with the schemes supported by the EIF.

The information session will summarizes the whole set of available tools for risk financing in France supported by EU programmes Horizon 2020 and COSME for the innovation strand.
