Financing Swedish Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises: Methods, Problems and Impact
AbstractSmall and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) are the seeds for a vital entrepreneurial economy. The Swedish SMEs, in particular, are very important for the future development of the Baltic Region. Financing these firms is an issue of great significance and a subject to care for. In this paper, we looked at established financing methods for Swedish SMEs. We also analyzed the impact of these methods on firm survivability using the Survival Index Value (SIV) model. The SIV model is a new tool to evaluate small firm performance, introduced recently by Dr. Adli Abouzeedan. Keywords: Small and Medium-sized Enterprises, SMEs, SIV model, Financing, Debt Financing, Equity Financing, Banks, Factoring, Disintermediation, Venture Capital, Angles, Swedish, Sweden, North Europe, European Union, EU, Baltic Region
