Project Finance Desk

In 2014 SANEC will engage in a number of pilot projects aimed at helping SANEC members access project finance. Often, entrepreneurs and small & medium sized businesses face a finance gap when it comes to making a business move into southern Africa or the Netherlands.

Initial investment is essential for an entrepreneur and SME realise growth and development. SANEC has therefore identified the need to support its Members with a project finance desk, a service that can connect members to relevant funds and financing programmes.

This desk will be developed in 2014 in cooperation with SANEC’s network to identify public financing agents, private investors, venture capitalists in southern Africa, Brussels and the Netherlands. The desk will help to answer your questions about the financing structure: loans, equity and mezzanine type of financing as well as to advise on interesting combinations herein.
