EIF for Venture Capital & Private Equity funds : how to submit an investment proposal

If you are a fund management company...

We aim at investing in :

  • Independent management teams that raise funds from a wide range of investors to provide risk capital to growing SMEs in Europe.
  • Funds targeting early stage companies that are developing or using advanced technologies in industry or services.

Besides providing you with funding, we can also help you in optimising your investment proposal, by sharing our expertise in all phases of structuring, raising and managing a fund.

Please submit a comprehensive concept paper and/or draft private placement memorandum, specifying the details below, to:  dealflow.inv@eif.org

Should the investment opportunity meet our criteria, your team will be invited to present the investment proposal at our headquarters in Luxembourg. Our teams will allocate the suitable source of funding at a later stage in the assessment procedure.
