EIC Fund

 

The EIC Fund is the venture arm of the European Innovation Council (EIC). It was set up as a capital fund under private law with the European Commission as a shareholder to fund companies selected under the EIC Accelerator.

With a budget of over €10 billion, the European Innovation Council (EIC) is strengthening Europe’s leadership in deep tech innovation by generating a pipeline of startups with the potential to become unicorns.

The EIC Fund is bridging the funding gap for deep tech European startups that have market-creating potential but carry a high risk for private and public investors. The EIC Fund supports these companies with patient capital to minimize this risk.
