Goal & Purpose

Main objective of the Start-up Fund is to provide young local companies with access to start-up capital. The Fund – initiated by FS Impact Finance in cooperation with Frankfurt Economic Development (Wirtschaftsförderung Frankfurt) – provides credit guarantees through the Guarantee Bank of Hesse (Bürgschaftsbank Hessen) and brings start-ups in touch with cooperating local banks.

FS Impact Finance evaluates the start-ups’ eligibility and creditworthiness, supports them with business plan development, guarantee recommendations and loan applications, and monitors the performance and development of financed companies during the loan term. More than 120 start-ups have been supported with loans up to 50,000 EUR.

Business start-ups are a powerful engine

for the local economy and far beyond. I firmly believe in the many talents that bring a great business idea to the market.
