The difficulties of SMEs. micro-companies, and entrepreneurs in accessing financing and simplifying their financial management lead to the appearance of “the financially excluded”. SMART FINANCE proposes as a solution the first transnational platform for access to and administration of financing, which will also be the first smart financial ecosystem (based on information and communication technologies). The platform will bring together all the key players of financing so as to offer the companies financing alternatives, personalised advice, accompaniment, and training.

Smart Finance improves access to financing for SMEs and entrepreneurs in the SUDOE area, improving their business competitiveness. Approximately 70% of GDP in this area is generated by SMEs without growth plans and lacking the necessary financial resources. For this reason, the project created a transnational platform for access to financing, betting on projects of the new economy.

Its results include:

  • The creation of a transnational platform for access and management of financing.
  • 7 windows of personalized advice to SMEs and entrepreneurs.
  • The preparation of a Critical Study on the Financial Offer in SUDOE.
  • A transnational survey on access to financing.
  • The creation of the SMART FINANCE Academy to train SMEs on financing and management.

Despite the completion of the project, the platform as the associated advisory service will continue to function.
