‘The EIB supports Belgian venture capital’ from Le Soir

Article from the Belgian daily newspaper Le Soir demonstrating that, alongside the ‘core business’ of the European Investment Bank (EIB) consisting of loans for the financing of capital projects in line with the European Union’s priorities, the EIB carries out a ‘secondary business’ by ‘being a shareholder’. The EIB is developing this activity through the European Investment Fund (EIF), its specialised subsidiary for venture capital. By acquiring holdings in companies, the EIF lends its financial support to both small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) and companies setting up infrastructure networks.
