One-on-one appointments available with representatives from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD)
The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD – www.ebrd.com) was founded in 1991 to create a new post-Cold War era in central and eastern Europe, furthering progress towards “market-oriented economies and the promotion of private and entrepreneurial initiative” by offering debt and equity products for the private sector. Since then, the EBRD has expanded in the Caucuses, Central Asia and select countries in the Middle East and North Africa.
In the Manufacturing and Services sectors, the EBRD has played a major role in developing the sector in our region by supporting local and foreign corporate clients as well as small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with both debt and equity financing. Total investment in the sector across the region is $14 billion in 762 projects, which includes financing for U.S. companies that have expanded in our region.
All EBRD operations are guided by the need to promote environmentally sound and sustainable development as well as appropriate procurement practices. EBRD is owned by the countries we operate in as well as other countries that have equities in seeing this region develop. In fact, the U.S. Government is the largest shareholder at 10%.
Benjamin Todd, Principal – Business Development for North America from EBRD will be visiting the Northeast Ohio region Tuesday, September 17th and Wednesday, September 18th. If interested in meeting, please email Benjamin at firstname.lastname@example.org
