What does this mean? c*funds partners parties who are looking to set up an investment fund. In collaboration with these parties a concept of an investment fund is drawn up. This concept is sent to the EIF (European Investment Fund). EIF has available funding within different thematic funding programmes. Concepts which are approved are topped up with EIF funding. The innovation fund is meant to fuel investments, boost growth and most importantly enable a more free flow of investment capital beyond country borders. The process of setting up an investment fund, including negotiations, lies between 4-6 months.
Setting up EIF funds is particularly interesting for:
● private equity owners (regardless from nation, also outside EU)
● Social Impact Accelerators
● local and national governments
c*funds has actively worked with the EIF to promote the possibilities for many startup accelerators, Angels and VC’s to set up and manage their own investment funds. As an expert on EIF fund management, c*funds has well established contacts with EIF and has track records on screening the documentation and guiding the preparation.
