Financial assistance

On the money: at BEDA we support export-oriented, innovative projects, new products, and investment plans with macroeconomic significance.

Our financial contributions are designed to help your company develop sustainably and are an adjunct to your own funds and external financing. They can be used to cover financing shortfalls and for reducing start-up costs. The size of the financial contribution depends on the type of support and is limited to 50% of eligible investment or project costs.

We want to make your project easier and quicker to implement – our services for companies. (PDF, 1 MB, 6 pages)
