Top 3 Grant Funding Sources for Small and Medium-Sized Biomedical Enterprises in Europe

Grant Funding Sources for SMEs Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) represent 99% of all businesses in the EU and their dynamism  is a key element of a successful economy. However, one of the most important issues facing biomedical SMEs is their difficulty accessing finance for research and innovation activities. Loans and grants are the two most common ways to obtain funding. The main difference between a grant and a loan is repayment. A loan requires you to repay the money you borrow, whereas a grant does not. Grants are, essentially, a gift. In other words, they are non-repayable and may be awarded by government departments, trusts, corporations, or philanthropists and given to individuals, businesses, educational institutions, or non-profits. Loans are generally given by banks to both individuals and businesses, but private lenders or individuals may also offer loans. The Advantages of a Grant Grants offer a number of benefits: No repayment necessary: Repayment is the fundamental difference between a grant and a loan, and also what makes grants more valuable than loans. No risk: Grants are a no-risk way to obtain the financing. If a loan is not repaid, the credit rating and assets will be put in jeopardy. Non-diluting: similar to loans, grants are non-dilutive and not require the sale of the company’s voting equity. They allows founding teams and existing shareholders to retain company ownership and control.
