After more than 15 years of facilitating access to finance for Walloon entrepreneurs, the SOWALFIN Group goes further. Today more than ever, we stand by the side of small and medium-sized enterprises.
The SOWALFIN Group was set up in 2002 by the Walloon Government. Our historical mission is to support the access to finance to MSMEs and self-employed entrepreneurs.
To achieve our mission, we offer:
guarantees to cover bank financing
various financial products
In collaboration with various partners, such as the Walloon “Invests” (mixed capital investment companies acting as local financial partners for SMEs seeking risk capital/equity financing) , we thus play a complementary role to banks.
Since 2018, the Walloon Government has also appointed SOWALFIN to offer information and guidance for Walloon entrepreneurs, including the “1890” service: a portal for entrepreneurs, combining a call center & a website to provide Walloon entrepreneurs with reliable, up-to date and clear information and guidance.
With the integration of these new services, the SOWALFIN Group is more than ever a reference partner of Walloon entrepreneurs: through its services, its network and its expertise. Our financial and non-financial offering is available at each step of the company lifecycle: start-up, growth, internationalization, innovation, green transition and transfer of ownership.
