In late 2009 Euroventures won the mandate to manage the Co-Investment Fund of the JEREMIE Program. As a result Euroventures IV Venture Capital Fund was established with HUF 4 billion shared capital and it started its activity in February 2010.
This Fund was matched with an additional HUF 3.1 billion Swiss Government contribution in September 2011. The investment period ends at the end of May, 2016.
The aim of the Co-Investment Fund is to facilitate private individuals to invest in Hungarian SMEs.
The capital can be invested into Hungarian small- and medium-sized enterprises with headquarters in the Central Hungarian region, which are younger than 5 years and have less than HUF 1.5 billion consolidated revenue.
Prospective portfolio companies can be a start-up or in expansion phase and should have a business plan, which clearly shows the use of the capital to grow the business and to achieve a return to the investors over a 3-6 year time frame.
