The EU Commission has launched proposal to strengthen venture capital markets in Europe, which will revise the European Venture Capital Funds (EuVECA) and the European Social Entrepreneurship Funds Regulations (EuSEF) in order to increase the range of businesses in which venture capital funds can invest. The proposal will also open up the EuVECA and EuSEF label, which allows the funds to be marketed to professional investors and to non-professional investors able to commit a minimum of €100,000, to more fund managers. The proposal has been introduced with the aim of making it easier for investors to invest in small and medium-sized innovative companies. The EU Commission has also launched a Q&A addressing the new rules.
