Fundos SIFIDE (Selo de Idoneidade)

Fundos SIFIDE (Selo de Idoneidade)

Up to 2.000.000€



As with any investment, the company is selling a percentage of its business in exchange for capital.

SIFIDE Funds are investment funds that benefit from tax credits for investing in startups that are recognized as innovative. For a company to be eligible to be invested in by one of these funds, it must obtain a Selo ID: Reconhecimento de Idoneidade awarded by ANI (National Innovation Agency). Given that very few startups in Portugal have the Selo ID: Reconhecimento de Idoneidade, those that do substantially increase their chances of receiving investment.

Important: Granter will help you prepare the application for the Selo ID: Reconhecimento de Idoneidade. The company will then have to apply for SIFIDE Funds directly and go through the fund's normal due diligence.
