    Goals / Remit

    Bpifrance (French public investment bank) was created by the French Act n°2012-1559 of 31 December 2012. Its two shareholders are the French State and Caisse des Dépôts. Since 2013, Bpifrance has become the one stop shop for entrepreneurs with a vastly comprehensive toolbox offered in the field to customers through 50 local branches. Our mission is simple: we believe in serving the future, by being entrepreneur-centric and heavily decentralized.

    Bpifrance’s goal is to favour the growth of the French economy by helping entrepreneurs thrive. We have many resources at our disposal to help entrepreneurs succeed. We mainly support micro-businesses, SMEs and mid-caps but we also accompany large caps that are considered important to the interests of France in terms of national economy, the territories or employment. We offer a continuum of solutions adapted to every key step in a business’ growth such as: business creation, financing, guarantees or equity investment.
