Venture capital investments
Venture capital investments facilitate and accelerate the growth and internationalisation of the enterprises where the investments are made, and develop them into interesting targets for further financing by other investors and industrial actors.
In venture capital investments, Finnvera’s financing products are direct equity investments and subordinated loans. The investments are made as minority investments. The fund’s holdings range from 10 to 40 per cent. The maximum initial investment is EUR 500,000.
Finnvera will continue its direct investments in early-stage innovative enterprises until the end of 2017. These operations will then be taken over by Tekes, in accordance with the policy outlined by the Ministry of Employment and the Economy.
