Clear value add for impact ventures

Quote from an ESIIF investee:

“The unique set-up and co-investment from the ESIIF have provided us with the necessary boost to follow our scaling plan and to close our ongoing financing round at the initial target.

For us as a European impact start-up that delivers results outside of Europe, the fact that the ESIIF targets our stage of development and is agnostic in terms of geographic focus and sector is something you rarely find in the financing world.“
