Date: 18 June 2019

Aim of the training

This training aims to enhance the knowledge of the SME/ARF NCPs on financials in the view of the EIC.

A major new feature of the EIC Accelerator will be the blending of different sources of financing to support accelerating the growth of companies, i.e. grants and equity, implemented via a newly established Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV). At the same time, the EIC will have interfaces with other sources of risk finance: SMEs applying might already have an investor on board already, during negotiations with the SPV a private investor might be invited to co-invest, interfaces with the pan-european fund-of-fund might be used, etc. 

Therefore this training will focus on the SPV/blended finance, and aims to have a look at the broader picture as well:

·         Frame the role of risk finance within the EIC

·         Do a reality check on the role and processes of the SPV

·         Gain a good basic understanding for all risk finance related instruments, vocabulary,  terms and conditions

·         Understand how venture capitalists think and act

·         Understand the role of a company that needs risk capital

It aims to help NCPs better understand key financial vocabulary and opportunities within the frame and eco-system of the EIC.

Workshop Target group: SME NCPs, ARF NCPs
