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: the board / SME posts the documents needed to present the financing project, which registered investors can consult before contacting them.

The FirmFunding platform:
For which types of financings ?

Provided you are a profitable or soon-to-be profitable joint-stock company with sales in excess of 5 million euros, all types of project are likely to be financed at least in part by recourse to equity financing:

  • 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 300 registered professional investors with a total financing capacity of more than €3 billion. These investors are essentially management company and family offices. €800 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.
