D2.2. List of selected best practices with their main features We identified several best practices, which deals with alternative financing in the benchmark countries. Based on the relevance of best practices (like the amount raised so far, the number of SMEs they reached, the average deal size), we selected the most relevant ones. Besides collecting the most important best practices, the project partners also listed the relevant experts in their countries. After analyzing the best practices with desk research, it was clear, that there is a more detailed analysis by expert interviews needed in order to collect qualitative information. Download
D2.3. Initial capacity-building strategy and implementation plan Altfinator project is brought to life to facilitate the improvement of innovative SMEs access to alternative financing through capacity building of the financial ecosystem and its participants in the countries where the potential for improvement is the highest (South-Europe and Central and Eastern Europe). To effectively target activities, a capacity building strategy for the project is needed. The aim of this report was to formulate such a strategy which will be further validated and updated. The strategy will be implemented at three levels as shown in the diagram below. Download
D2.4. Validated capacity-building strategy and implementation plan Alternative financing (AF) can play an important role in bridging the financing gap that can be observed at the seed stage, but once obtaining initial funding, innovative SMEs / startups are more capable to attract further investments from other AF providers, that is, AF is also seen as a way to further promote the later-stage development of innovation-oriented projects.

D2.1 Report on Alternative Financing Ecosystem Alternative financing (AF) for businesses across Europe has increased considerably in recent years, becoming an important source of finance for entrepreneurs, startups and SMEs. However, access to AF varies considerably across Europe with Southern, Central and Easter European regions lagging behind Northern and Western European regions in terms of AF volume (total and per capita). To bridge this gap, Altfinator will facilitate the transfer of best practices from more advanced to less advanced markets. We will design, develop and implement a capacity-building strategy for the financial ecosystem and its participants in South, Central and Eastern European countries to improve the provision and absorption of AF.
