Examples of SME financing online

Since its creation in 2016, more than 60 projects have been put online on the marketplace FirmFunding, for a total of more than 470 M euros. As these examples of projects show, the financing of companies by private debt makes it possible to finance any type of project (asset financing, internal growth, external growth, exit of shareholders, transmission...) in all sectors of activity (industry, health, agri-food, audiovisual, real estate development...), for amounts ranging from 1 to 20 million euros. FirmFunding thus makes this type of high of balance sheet financing, regardless of its structure (full dry bond, equity/bond mix and/or convertible bond) accessible to growth SMEs.

Financed sectors

No sector is excluded as a matter of principle. SMEs with projects can belong to any sector, provided that the platform's minimum intervention criteria are respected, namely: project amount to be financed between 1 and 20 million euros, a company with a turnover of about 5 million euros per year, and profitable or about to be profitable. More than the sector of activity, it is therefore the SME's financial metrics and the maturity of its business that will count. Indeed, the structuring of the financing obtained, between equity (shares), and/or convertible bonds and pure private debt (dry bonds) often depends on these last aspects.

FirmFunding is delighted to allow SMEs from various sectors, close to our values, to finance their development and thus participate in their highlighting. Find these sectors here:

An adapted solution for SME financing

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.
