Abstract

The present document is aimed at:
1. Public bodies in charge of developing or implementing programmes aiming to provide regional/local SMEs access to funding sources;
2. Businesspersons looking for an insight into the funding source that is best suited to their needs based on their investment readiness, i.e. how ready they are to accommodate or meet with representatives of the SME finance industry.
The scope of this document goes beyond funding sources as such. Indeed, it also seeks to deal with the tools that support these funding sources in promoting the consolidation of companies once they have accessed finance.
The present document is designed to allow intermediaries to easily adapt it to regional contexts as well as to provide speedy links to additional information about the various concepts it examines. A simple click on the URLs appearing in the document will refer readers to the corresponding sites.
