One off versus long term
Groeifonds subsidizes SME, knowledge centers and other parties for one off projects with an exit as end-point, that are non-viable for private investors to step in, with an added value towards GDP and society. The minimum tickets executed by Groeifonds are EUR 30M. A high level of uncertainty is not a showstopper in the decision-making process of the fund itself.
Invest.nl works with tickets between EUR 5 and 50M. The minimum size of an investment round should exceed EUR 10M since the maximum funding percentage coming from Invest.nl is 50%. Invest.nl is for going concern, long term focused companies. The typical sweet spot is funding a challenging number of factories/plants.
