Simplify the search among the 3000 existing aids
The site lists around 3,000 devices, from local departmental aid to European aid, including regional and national aid. It is a reference database on all financing needs: aid for business creation, aid for unemployed entrepreneurs, aid for integration, aid for hiring apprentices, aid to finance the development of its business, aid for innovation, aid linked to ZFU, AFR, ZRR zoning, etc. This database is part of the simplification measures undertaken by the Government.
With the support of the support of the Ministry of Economy, Finance and Industry and the General Direction of the economy (DGE), the Observatory of Aid to Enterprises has two main missions:
- Inform SMEs about the business aid and economic development policies developed for their benefit: list business aid, keep up to date with the latest aid aid;
- Evaluate the impact of public aid and its relevance.
Who is the Business Aid Observatory for?
The potential users of the data collected are very diverse
- TPE and PME mainly;
- Project leaders (creators or buyers of businesses);
- Networks and associations offering support services;
- The Chambers of Commerce and Industry, Chamber of Trades and Crafts and other professional organizations;
- Local and regional authorities;
- State services.
A multi-criteria search for existing aid
The site allows for a multi-criteria search.
A first method proposes a search engine which first asks to define the nature of the project (creation / takeover; employment / training; innovation; international development ….). The next criterion is the territory: department or municipality. The last one is the profile, which allows you to target by activity or nature of the business.
Another method works on the basis of SIRET. This identification number identifies the legal form of your company and the nature of the activity. These two pieces of information allow the site to list the aids you can benefit from.
The third and last method proposes a search by financier. A drop-down menu allows you to choose the one that concerns you if you know it.
Please note, however, from the home page, the site reports that the 2016 territorial reform may have changed the aid and conditions for accessing it.
