Loans and guarantees
In collaboration with Danish banks, financial institutions, leasing companies and investors, we offer loans and guarantees to Danish companies across all sectors and in all stages of growth. We provide special loans to start-ups in the very early stage of their development as well as the more mature companies planning to invest in operation, development or change of ownership. We can also offer loans to companies in need of capital for expansion and export. You can obtain the loans directly from us or we can issue a guarantee which facilitates a loan from the bank.
Newly established companies with a brief history
As the owner of a start-up company, you may find it difficult to obtain financing. It is often difficult to show the key financial figures and the performance history required to obtain a loan from a bank. This applies to start-ups at a very early stage with a fully developed product, high growth potential and their first customer pipeline or young entrepreneurs who already have products and customer pipelines but whose short existence makes it difficult to obtain financing to accelerate growth. In cooperation with financing partners, this is where The Export and Investment Fund of Denmark (EIFO) can step in with loan financing or guarantees to the bank which will help to facilitate your growth plans.
Mature companies with investment plans
EIFO can finance all kinds of operation and development in many well-established companies in Denmark. Perhaps you need to expand or modify your production or facilities, strengthen your sales capacities, train your employees, finance a warehouse, or finance a change of ownership.
EIFO can, of course, finance export companies as well, companies who wish to conquer new or uncertain markets. Warehouses, new machinery, and facilities as well as expenses for raw materials and materials in general can put a strain on the liquidity. And success may lead to orders which may be difficult to fill without infusion of capital. Sometimes substantial amounts totaling millions may be required to strengthen the company’s growth. EIFO can provide the necessary financing in cooperation with a bank. We provide the guarantee required by the bank or another financing partner which will allow your company to expand beyond the borders of Denmark.
