Strong medium-sized businesses in Rhineland-Palatinate

Small and medium enterprises are facing basic change processes which are accelerated by the progressive application and expansion of new technologies and the increasing globalization of economic activity. The medium-sized enterprises need to not only react to these changes in order to remain competitive, but also offensively exploit the opportunities. In order to support the economy in Rhineland-Palatinate to meet this challenge, the Investment and Development Bank Rheinland-Pfalz (ISB) offers business support with financing concepts and detailed information.

The specific programs for medium-sized businesses depend on size criteria. Companies that exceed a certain size are not eligible for promotion under the respective programs. Thereby, the so-called SME-frame (SME = small and medium-sized enterprises) of the EU is often used as a scale. Accordingly, companies are eligible, if they have fewer than 250 people and an annual turnover of less than EUR 50 million or a balance sheet total of less than EUR 43 million.

Services of ISB

Financial economic promotion through the ISB always means also a promotion of SMEs. Medium-sized enterprises create jobs, develop innovative products, production processes and services, and introduce them successfully into the market. The promotional programs of the ISB consider the central role of SMEs for the economy in Rheinland-Pfalz. All programs focus on mid-sized companies. For big enterprises and corporate groups the promotional potential is restricted.
