VentureXchange Ltd. carried out several access to finance evaluation studies assessing the SME financing situation in general and with regards to certain financial instruments with mandates from international financing institutions including the European Investment  Fund (EIF) and Oesterreichische Entwicklungsbank AG (OeEB). The studies covered countries including Albania, Bulgaria, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Croatia, FRY Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia. The special focus on financial instruments included private equity, venture capital and mezzanine finance. 

Working as a consultant for the EIF, VentureXchange Ltd. produced the assessment report appraising the venture capital availability and prospects, identification of the gaps and market failures and recommendation of possible measures how to develop further this market in countries including Albania, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Croatia, FRY Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia (Western Balkans Venture Capital Assessment). VentureXchange Ltd.’s evaluation study (Western Balkans Venture Capital Assessment ) was used as a basis for launching the Western Balkans Enterprise Development and Innovation Facility (WB EDIF) in December 2012. WB EDIF consists of four components including financing enterprise innovation fund (venture capital fund, supervised by EIF), expansion capital fund (managed by EBRD) and guarantee facility (arranged by EIF) and technical assistance for strategic investments, particularly in infrastructure, energy and private sector development (including OECD and World Bank participation). The successful launch of WB EDIF enabled it to undertake its initiative of promoting the emergence and growth of innovative and high-potential companies, as well as the creation of a regional venture capital market. It is a joint initiative of the EU, IFIs, bilateral donors and governments of the Western Balkans with the €145 million of initial capital which is expected to effectively translate into over €300 million of direct financing for SMEs in the region and growth of innovative and high-potential companies, as well as the creation of a regional venture capital market.
