FUELING THE GAP BETWEEN “SEED” & “SERIES B” FOR EUROPEAN INNOVATIVE COMPANIES!

First InnoFund©, Debt financing and equity. First InnoFund© a new generation of financial partner for European innovative companies offering investment banking services. The company has its own range of Bridge and Venture loans or Equity financing directly on its dedicated co-investment funds.

First InnoFund® also assists and supports start-ups (mid/late stage) and innovative European SMEs in raising funds from investors outside its own funds.

There is no player on the market able of addressing the specific financing needs and support for innovative companies between the “Seed” and the “Series B” stages.
In this interval, companies generally have a track record that is not yet proven while they are building their sales funnel.
These companies therefore need financing to continue their activity and the development of their solution to become profitable.

Beyond financing, support for their activities by professionals able to provide the necessary tools is essential to successfully reach Series B and build the sustainability of their business.
First InnoFund® and innochain® are today the only players in France, Belgium and Luxembourg to offer a real solution to answer the gap between “Seed” and “Series B”.

BUILDING YOUR FUNDING STRATEGY

Our loans allow high traction companies to scale up, by financing their organic development projects (commercial, R&D, international) or opportunities such as acquisitions. They are useful with complex or fragmented shareholder structure because they avoid negotiations between shareholders. Bridge or Venture loans are to be preferred over equity because there cost are lower and makes it possible to seek better valuations during the next fundraising. In addition, they can be coupled with Venture loans from European Investment Bank.
