Success in a new venture often requires more than just a strong will and a good business concept. You also need capital and, in many cases, support from experienced advisers who are knowledgeable about growth and operating a business. Almi welcomes all companies and business concepts that have growth potential. The greater the potential for growth, the greater the commitment from Almi.
Almi offers loans to companies with growth potential and assists in their business development. This applies to businesses in the start-up phase as well as established companies. The Almi Invest subsidiary provides venture capital for early-stage, emerging companies with large growth potential and a scalable business concept.

Initial contact with Almi always starts with a dialogue focusing on the company's needs. This is to determine whether there is a need for Almi's services or whether other organisations exist that better meet the needs of the company.
