For established companies seeking to finance further growth, but for start-ups as well, Mittelständische Beteiligungsgesellschaften (MBGs - “Public-Private Equity Companies for Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises") are available as financing partners in the federal states. As independent institutes, they are supported by the federal states.
MBGs operate primarily through silent participation through the provision of subordinated capital. They have no investment focus on special industry sectors.
An equity searching company can expect a financing volume of up to EUR 3 million. It is characteristic that the individual MBGs are only active in their respective federal state. They do not operate to maximize profits. A further advantage of financing by equity capital from the federal state MBGs for companies is that they have easier access to the financing network of the respective development bank. That is why they are an important instrument for the economic development policy of the federal states.You can find this fragment in the following contexts:
