Supporting innovative start-ups

This video case study explains how Berlin’s start-ups providing innovative and sustainable products grow and scale thanks to ERDF co-financed Venture Capital (VC) investments. The Federal State of Berlin was one of EU’s pioneers in implementing ERDF equity financial instruments. Three final recipients as well as the ERDF intermediate body and the fund manager describe how the VC funds work in practice, what advantages they offer and what Berlin’s ambitions are to further expand the range of the ERDF equity products in the 2021-2027 period.
