What is FirmFunding ?

FirmFunding is the first and only financing platform dedicated to private placement (bond and equity) for SMEs. To finance their growth, SMEs need to have at their disposal other sources of financing than bank loans.

FirmFunding is a marketplace that aims to connect SME advisors with professional investors, when a private placement financing project is released online.

The online-process is very simple: SME councils put online useful documents to present the financing project of their client company, which registered investors can consult before contacting them.

The FirmFunding platform:
For which types of financings ?

Provided that it is a profitable corporation or in the process of being so, and generates a revenue of more than €5 million, all types of projects are likely to be financed at least in part by the use of private debt:

  • All types: development (organic growth, external growth), transmission (MBO, MBI, OBO, exit of minority shareholders, etc.), refinancing, asset financing.
  • All sectors: services, agro, real estate, industry, consulting, technologies...
  • Regardless of the headquarter location: whole France and the EU.

Why finance your business with FirmFunding ?

FirmFunding already has more than 250 registered professional investors with a total financing capacity of more than €3 billion. These investors are essentially management company and family offices. €320 million of corporate financings have been uploaded since its creation.

Investors registered on the FirmFunding platform can thus provide a source of financing to strengthen the (quasi-) equity capital of SMEs, in complementarity with the bank, without diluting the founding shareholders.
