Finnvera's Start Guarantee for a start-up
If the bank needs additional security for a loan, the bank can apply for Finnvera's Start Guarantee on your behalf. The Start Guarantee is ideal for speeding up the early-stage activities of companies that have been in operation for less than three years.
If, for some reason, the Start Guarantee is not suitable for financing your company's project, a Finnvera Guarantee can be applied for as security for the loan.
