The European Investment Fund (EIF) and the Diorama Investments have agreed a deal that is expected to result in an investment of more than €125 million in the growth and expansion of Greek SMEs.

Aimed at companies with a strong international angle seeking to scale up their businesses, the fund will provide access to finance for Greek firms.

With the deal that is expected to trigger investments of more than 125 million euros, together with the European Investment Fund and private sector partners, we are giving a boost to Greek companies to invest and scale up their businesses in Greece and beyond. By improving access to finance for SMEs, we are helping them to become engines for growth, supporting investments in jobs in Greece and the EU.
