Through our Member Companies and Consultants EIED offers a wide range of services to small
and medium size businesses (SMEs) interested in financing their projects by making use of the existing funding facilities
in the Republic of Austria.
For innovative projects, the Austrian Government provides guarantees for debt or equity capital.
In particular, guarantees for equity capital are emerging as an engine for financing innovation, assuming 100 percent liability
for individual contributions of up to 20,000 euros and 50 percent for sums above that level. Small and mid-sized businesses
benefit in particular from the availability of guarantees for equity capital.
Through a combination of subsidies, loans and guarantees, a large portion of financing can
be covered. The guarantee can cover up to 100 percent of investments and makes profit participation especially attractive
for investors. EIED assists it´s Member Companies to benefit of these funding opportunities.
