Participation in Venture Capitals

​​​​

National Bank of Greece participates as a limited partner in venture capital companies created within the framework of Equifund both in Greece and abroad.

The aim is to forge close cooperation with these companies in Greece with a view to supporting the country's innovation ecosystem, fostering partnership agreements with universities, specialized partnerships for harnessing the commercial potential of research results, and developing partnerships with research centers (e.g., the Institute of Applied & Computational Mathematics-IACM, the National Research and Technology Center, the "Alexander Fleming" Biomedical Sciences Research Center, and the National Center for Scientific Research "Dimokritos").

In addition, the potential for co-investment in the companies in which the said funds invest in Greece and overseas will be considered.

    The aim of the fund is to provide funding to new startups and to create a new philosophy in the Greek business ecosystem, universities and research centers.

    Its initial capital is €27 million, and it is expected to rise to as much as €40 million. Besides the Equifund fund-of-funds, which is represented by the European Investment Fund (EIF), other private investors are participating in Uni.Fund, including National Bank of Greece and the Alexandros S. Onassis Foundation.

    The key target groups are teams and businesses at the pre-seed and seed stages working in the area of ICT and e-business (e.g., ICT, IoT, health-tech, fin-tech, insurance-tech), with innovative products or services (e.g. in trade, agrofood, maritime, tourism, health etc.), as well as the broader technology sector (materials, energy informatics, environment etc.).

    The initiative aspires to build the foundations for a healthy and sustainable business ecosystem in Greece and to generate value by fostering innovative enterprises. Uni.Fund will support the teams that will be financed so as to help them develop their human resources, implement tried and tested go-to-market strategies, and pursue growth in Greece and abroad.
