Helping the growth, development and internationalization of companies and the entrepreneurial ecosystem.

AXIS promotes financing complementary to bank financing for entrepreneurs and companies, with the aim of helping companies' and the entrepreneurial ecosystem's growth, development and internationalisation, particularly for technology-based companies.

Its great added value lies in the fact that it promotes the creation of funds that support both start-ups and innovative companies, as well as achieving the internationalisation and growth of more consolidated companies.
