Created in 2008 by Bpifrance, the EuroQuity platform brings together companies/project leaders who are looking for funding and investors in order to assist their launch and growth. The European-wide platform provides entrepreneurs with visibility and credibility internationally.
The platform is for all companies including start-ups, spin-offs/outs, and more “mature” companies that have a development and/or growth project. All stages of company life are covered:
- Growth & Development
- Transmission (takeover financing)
By producing content about the company’s profile, connecting with the existing network, choosing to belong to communities and by obtaining labels, the company increases its score on the platform and is propelled to the front of the stage where its new partners or investors are waiting.
For their part, investors have access to a range of projects qualified by the market. The tool has already proven itself: €500 million have been raised since 2008!
