EUROPEAN FUNDING

The European Union offers lots of financial aid to companies. It is classified into 3 main categories:  

  • Structural funds for more local projects.
  • Sectoral programmes developed for specific sectors of at least regional scope.
  • EU external action funding, which finances projects in countries outside the EU.

Initial searches can be carried out on the Your Europe website funding pages. There is specific funding to support the transition and decarbonisation of companies to complement these schemes. Contact us for more information.

BANKS, BPIFRANCE

Dunkirk maintains a special and harmonious relationship with banks and BPIFrance.

  • Banks regularly participate in financing companies but there are differences based on their size (a group, microenterprise, SME). Although it is quite simple for large corporations to access credit, getting funding can be a lot more difficult for smaller companies. That’s why there are other financial arrangements available. Our agency can advise you on them.

 

  • BPIFrance supports companies at each stage of their development: with loans, guarantees, equity, and particularly in their innovation, transition and international projects.

SET A COMPANY IN A REGIONAL AID ZONE

The European Commission allows the French authorities to grant specific financial aid in Regional Aid Zones (AFR). This funding contributes to the development of these areas, particularly as it supports the initial investments made by large corporations and SMEs and/or job creation related to these investments.

LOCAL AND REGIONAL AID

  • The Hauts-de-France region reinforces national programmes, particularly through its Rev3 programme linked to the regional ecological transition and transformation. With an investment capacity of €40 m, Rev3 Capital is investing equity in regional companies supporting development projects as part of the 3rd Industrial Revolution (circular economy, energy efficiency, low carbon economy, etc.).
  • The territory’s local authorities (Greater Dunkirk Urban Council (CUD) and the Hauts de Flandre Greater District Council (CCHF)) can offer support to local industrialists who invest and create jobs. That’s additional cash flow that should not be overlooked!
  • Initiative Flandre can help to found or develop a company by providing an interest-free loan with no guarantee required. A renowned organisation, banks grant loans more easily to companies who have benefited from an interest-free loan.

HAVE YOU HEARD OF BUSINESS ANGELS?

Some directors of private companies or entrepreneurs invest their personal money in innovation and start-up companies.

Known as “business angels” as their finance is often “heaven sent”, they are an interesting source of funding for a business in the process of growth.

But what are they and how do you get their attention?

REVITALISATION AGREEMENTS

In Dunkirk, revitalisation agreements can be reached and can lend a significant helping hand in some cases. What do they involve?

  • Companies with more than 1,000 employees applying a restructuring plan that affects the balance of an employment area must now implement an initiative promoting the creation of new jobs.
  • In addition to their financial and moral obligations towards the employees they dismiss, these companies also have a duty to the territory: as reparation, they must make a financial contribution to the reconstruction of the business and the development of jobs in these territories, with the aim of re-creating as many jobs as they cut.
  • This funding can be accessed, thus providing an additional financial leverage for all job creation projects.

COMPLEMENTARY FINANCIAL SUPPORT NOT TO BE OVERLOOKED

Large corporations are setting up specific schemes that can be used as a springboard for start-ups, innovative projects and even linked to occupational integration, etc…

  • Open@TotalEnergies and EDF Pulse And You are two examples of initiatives led by large industrial groups. They provide support for innovative projects involving carbon neutrality. The challenges around the energy transition are encouraging more and more large private corporations to support carbon neutrality-related projects.
  • TotalEnergies Développement Régional provides financial support for projects that are getting off the ground and developing, start-up takeovers and SMEs.
