The Chamber of Commerce of Oviedo, is working to submit a 2nd phase of the SMART FINANCE Project called FINEXPORT focused on 2 main themes for the SMEs, start-ups and companies from the SUDOE space: ACCESS TO FINANCE + INTERNATIONALISATION.
SMAR FINANCE started in 2016 with the objective of facilitating access to finance and improve financial management of entrepreneurs, SMEs and companies. In the frame of the project, we have created the 1st transnational ICT platform providing support services to SMEs to access public and private finance as well as helping companies develop their business plan, financial plans, attend financial rounds, training through webinars and smart guides. The platform includes innovative SMART tools based on Artificial Intelligence such as the Business Health Report (report about the health of the company with recommendations to improve) and the Public Finance Opportunities Diagnosis (identifies in less than 10 seconds the financing opportunities for a company in a specific sector and region).
With more than 5.000 users and companies informed and trained, more than 500 financial opportunities available for SMEs and a large financial ecosystem with relevant agents like Banco Santander or EBAN as associates of our project, we would like to take a step further and submit a 2nd phase of the project enlarged to the internationalization field both for SMEs and companies from the SUDOE but also, and very important, to start-ups.
