The InvestEU Portal is one of the three pillars of the InvestEU Programme, together with the InvestEU Fund and the InvestEU Advisory Hub.
The Portal is the online EU marketplace connecting EU-based project promoters seeking financing from investors worldwide. It is a single EU-wide database that is easily accessible and user-friendly to attract investments to quality projects that are pre-screened by the European Commission.
Social investors can benefit from this platform in two ways: they can publish their own project ideas to attract investments or search for projects and businesses with the Commission’s seal of quality to invest in.
Good to know
The European Commission may transmit the projects received on the InvestEU Portal to the InvestEU implementing partners (e.g. EIF, National Promotional Banks, International financial institutions etc.), who will examine projects falling within their geographic and activity scope, and to the InvestEU Advisory Hub, where an advisory initiative exists and if the project promoters request advisory support. Therefore, the Portal can bring enhanced visibility and opportunities for social investors’ projects and investment ideas.
How to benefit from the InvestEU Portal
Investors and project promoters have to create a user profile to submit projects or access projects already published on the InvestEU Portal website. Submitted projects are screened by the European Commission based on the admission criteria set out in Commission Implementing Decision (EU) 2021/626.
