Access to finance for companies in South-East Europe
The FINNO - Access2Finance and Innovation Platform - is a new regional platform that offers information on financial instruments and innovation support available to small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in South-East Europe. The platform was developed within the framework of EEN and at the initiative of seven EEN consortia from six countries: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Montenegro, Macedonia, Serbia and Slovenia. It aims to further strengthen the growth and development of SMEs throughout the region by improving their access to financing and focusing on the innovative process from business ideas to commercial success in international markets.
Bearing in mind that there are various types of financial and innovation support provided to SMEs by various EU programs and institutions, FINNO offers information on all relevant and available funding and innovation opportunities that could suit a particular business. In addition to its informative nature, the platform brings together SMEs and financial institutions involved in certain EU programs, but also connects international innovation stakeholders who could help SMEs in South-Eastern Europe to further develop their business and advisory services provided by international financial institutions involved in this program. Through the platform, it is also possible to schedule an online meeting with numerous EEN advisors from the region.
