Simple innovation, great opportunities.

2021 is the perfect year to reap the rewards of soft financing. Relying on a network of sector specialists.

Finding your way through calls for funding and incentives is not always easy, but today soft financing tools represent a strategic resource for shifting your business towards the more competitive paradigm of Industry 4.0. Thanks to the multiple regulatory opportunities already existing, businesses can plan targeted investments, whose amount is recoverable up to 60%.

Under a scenario of radical change, modernising small and medium-sized businesses and large enterprises through targeted investments in machinery and training is an opportunity to make a shift towards a new business concept, which is necessary to remain competitive, but also to embrace the concept of an integrated and optimised supply chain.

To make the best use of soft financing tools, clear and time-scaled goals, feasibility studies and option appraisals are required. An investment programme conceived and discussed with an advisor is the key to benefiting from economic policy instruments.

In fact, soft financing helps companies to obtain subsidies, low-interest loans and tax credits by applying to specific government financing tools or calls for funding.

However, understanding the calls and how to apply, and drafting a project, it’s not so easy and therefore companies need the help of professionals who are constantly up to date with the law and able to deal with the complex mechanism of searching for funding.

Knowing the company is essential to access soft financing tools. The advisor and sector specialists will be able to accurately map the company and identify where and how to take measures.

 Steele can rely on the expertise of Etica Finanziaria (www.eticafinanziaria.it), a company which is specialised in financial, credit, real estate, business, insurance and wealth management consulting services. Its purpose is to support companies in the shift towards the Industry 4.0 paradigm.
