JEREMIE

JEREMIE (Joint European Resources for Micro to medium Enterprises) is a joint initiative of the European Commission, the European Investment Bank (EIB) and the European Investment Fund (EIF) launched in 2005 in order to promote increased access to finance for the business expansion of micro, small and medium-sized enterprises in the regions of the EU. JEREMIE allows Member States to use part of their EU Structural Funds to finance SMEs by means of equity, loans or guarantees, or through a revolving Holding Fund acting as an umbrella fund.
