LIOF has three financial teams, organized around the life phase of a company: there is a team startups, scale-ups and SMEs. The SME Transition Loan falls under team SME. An entrepreneur/business has similar but also different challenges in each phase. This division enables us to provide more value to companies depending on the stage they are in.
These three financial teams also work closely with the Business Development department to support companies as broadly and optimally as possible, identify opportunities and realize impact.
