JEREMIE (Joint European Resources for Micro to Medium Enterprises) is a joint initiative launched by the European Commission (Directorate General Regional Policy) and the European Investment Bank Group to improve access to finance for SMEs in the EU within the Structural Funds framework for the period 2007 - 2013. JEREMIE enables the EU Member States and Regions to put money from the Structural Funds and also national resources into holding funds that can finance SMEs in a flexible and innovative way. The new initiative aims at developing and fostering the role of entrepreneurship within the EU.

The project is supported from the Operational Programme Research and Development, co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund and the state budget of the Slovak Republic and implemented through JEREMIE Initiative.

JEREMIE initiative is managed in Slovakia by the European Investment Fund, on behalf of Slovenský záručný a rozvojový fond s.r.o.
