LIOF, the Limburg Development and Investment Company, works to promote economic development in the Dutch province of Limburg. LIOF supports companies in terms of innovation, development, and investments; and helps them to set up business. Alongside this, LIOF creates favourable business conditions which allow high-potential sectors to develop. This involves in particular creating opportunities for small to medium-sized businesses (SME’s) and providing space for new business activity. LIOF provides enterprises with pragmatic, committed, and proactive support by combining its expertise with financial vigour and an extensive network of contacts. This combination of services makes LIOF a unique and dynamic partner to work with.
LIOF has three financial instruments to support the SME’s in Limburg: LBDF Seed Fund (for high-tech start-ups), the Participation Fund and the SME Loan Fund.
