SME Export Financing - learning by doing


There is export financing available, but do you know how to take advantage of all the alternatives? Finnvera's SME Export Finance Programme offers information and practical tools for the financing of exports.

The programme is aimed at Finnish SMEs engaged in direct exports. Its objective is to familiarise companies with export financing solutions. The programme is also suitable for larger enterprises, which need basic information on export financing.

"SMEs aren't always familiar with financing and payment solutions involving exports and internationalisation. The right solutions promote negotiations and can be a decisive factor in winning bids. According to the companies that have participated in our programme, the best things they took away from it were the new ideas on financing solutions for concrete export projects," explains Finnvera Senior Adviser Erno Ihto.

The free programme is offered in close co-operation with banks operating in Finland. A one-day Export Finance Workshop will be held for each participant enterprise by Finnvera and a bank chosen by the enterprise.  Seminars on export finance will also be held for the programme participants.

Enterprises are chosen based on applications. The enterprise chosen for the programme: must have a profitable business; has already concluded its first export deals; and wants to grow by increasing exports.

Apply for the autumn programme group by no later than 31 October 2014!
