High demand of European start-ups and SMEs for equity financing from the European Innovation Council (EIC)

Met dank overgenomen van Europese Commissie (EC), gepubliceerd op vrijdag 11 oktober 2019.

A total of 1,852 applications were received following the first ‘cut-off’ of the EIC Accelerator programme yesterday, requesting a record of more than €5.2bn of financial support.

Almost 500 companies requested blended financing (grant and equity) totalling €2.8bn - with equity representing, on average, two thirds of the requested amount per application. Grant support of €2.4bn was requested from approximately 1,350 companies. More than 2/3 of the latter have mentioned their agreement for a possible counter-offer in terms of forms of financial support (i.e. blended finance).

Companies from Spain (228), Italy (173), Israel (164), Germany (142) and France (134) submitted the largest number of proposals, with Israel (80), Spain (78), France (37), Germany (35) and Italy (34) submitting the largest number of blended finance applications.
