Online Platform to facilitate access to climate finance for MSMEs | Climate Finance, India 2020
The climate finance platform developed by Intellecap guides MSMEs through the process: The platform will not only list available finance instruments, but filter opportunities for which a MSME is eligible, and guide the MSMEs at every step to tap that source of climate finance. It further supports climate finance providers: Solution providers can directly provide information on the available financing opportunities on the platform; and through the eligibility check, creating a pipeline of investment ready MSMEs. This reduces the overall transaction costs.
SEED Practitioner Labs Climate Finance in India engaged financial institutions, funders, intermediaries and other SME ecosystem stakeholders over a multi-step process to co-create innovative climate finance products and mechanisms that extend access to long-term financing opportunities for “missing middle” small and growing climate-smart enterprises that struggle to advance beyond the start-up stage and multiply their contributions to climate-smart and socially inclusive economies.
