Limburg Business Development Fund

Would you like to test the feasibility of your idea? Or are you looking for financing to develop a prototype or for the start-up phase of your company? The Limburg Business Development Fund (LBDF) offers a mix of financial instruments to develop business concepts.

Will your idea become a company?

We provide financing to bring an idea or prototype to fruition or to facilitate a start. Your company is eligible for a grant, loan, or participation if you are actually located in Limburg (physically and actively present) and if you operate in one of the spearhead sectors in Limburg:

  • Agri-food
  • Logistics
  • High-tech Systems
  • Chemicals / Materials
  • Smart services
  • Life Sciences
  • Crossovers between these sectors.

Be informed!

In the past few years we stimulated many innovations and supported start-up companies. However, the LBDF budgets are exhausted. This means you can no longer submit new applications. Please contact us to discuss which alternatives there might be for your need.
