Finance Track 1: Capacity Building Session for Green Entrepreneurs and Start-ups: How to effectively access to finance?
Access to finance can be challenging for green entrepreneurs due to limited information or understanding of new business models or the problems driving them. In addition, there are also challenges in getting from innovation to the market. Therefore, reliable access to a variety of funding sources is crucial for the green sectors and for the development of the circular economy.
Which are the real financing needs of green entrepreneurs? What do the financial organisations look for in the companies to support them in access to finance? Which are the guidelines that they use to identify potentially borrowers?
Green entrepreneurs and Switchers are invited to explore with financiers how to crack the financing nut and to succeed in accessing finance. During the session experts, devided in different groups, will answer to Green entrepreneurs questions. A final picture presenting the main inputs will be shared to close the session.
