The creation of Bpifrance in 2013 addressed a need of rationalizing the different French public financing tools dedicated to companies. Bpifrance is able to fund firms throughout their lifecycle - from the very beginning to mergers and acquisitions operations - with all the range of financial tools : loans, equity and guarantees. Committed to collective interest Bpifrance systematically proceeds by co-financing firms projects with private banks or private investors. In doing so, it plays a major role for funding regional companies. Moreover, partnerships stricken with the European institutions' and local governments' financial tools channel funds towards local activities fitting the strategic framework of the different French régions.
