Grants & Loans

Our list of Grants and Loans includes programmes that give start-ups financial support and financing offers for start-ups on a debt-to-equity basis; these range from à fonds perdu contributions to special risk loans from banks. The list does not include investors or programmes that enable equity-based financing; minor support – for example, for trade fair visits – is also not recorded.

First listed are the offers that have been mentioned by startupticker in news articles. The list is then sorted according to various financing options. The offers are listed alphabetically within each category.

The purpose of this list is to provide an overview. If you are interested in an offer, we recommend that you contact the organisation concerned. Each entry in our list contains a link that will lead you to further information.

We are pleased to receive suggestions and feedback on the list at
