Székesfehérváron. vezérigazgatója elmondta, hogy a Debrecen után másodikként elindult városalapjukat a tulajdonukban lévő Focus Ventures Zrt. kezeli. Jelezte, hogy a pénzintézet hosszú távú stratégiai céljai között kiemelt helyen vannak a városalapok, ezért a közeljövőben továbbiakat is indítanak. MFB Invest, Bugár Csaba vezérigazgató Fotó: Kallus György Benke Ákos, a Focus Ventures Zrt. vezérigazgatója közölte, hogy a most elindított magántőke alap 12 éves futamidejű, ötmilliárd forintos tőkével alakult, hét éven keresztül fektethetnek be, akár többször is. Székesfehérvár mellett egész Fejér megyére fókuszálnak, ahol olyan kis- és középvállalkozásokat keresnek, amelyek fejleszteni szeretnének és ehhez megbízható pénzügyi partnert keresnek. Elmondta, hogy a tőkebefektetésnek nincs pénzbeli felső korlátja, ettől függetlenül 25-30 vállalkozásnak kívánnak segíteni és a kombinált pénzügyi mix miatt 15 milliárdnyi fejlesztést prognosztizálnak. Cser-Palkovics András (Fidesz) Székesfehérvár polgármestere örömmel konstatálta, hogy a városalap fizikailag is elindult és jelezte, hogy ez komoly lehetőséget jelent a vállalkozások számára. Úgy vélte, a vírusjárvány miatt még inkább szükség volt a tőkealap indulására.
