An event for entrepreneurs looking for money, the right contacts, acceleration programs and mentors to start and grow their business.


Are you starting a business and need money/advice on product/service development? Or are you already generating initial revenue and want exponential sales growth and expansion into new markets? Perhaps you are in final discussions with a private investor for an investment and want to double it?


If you answered at least one question with YES, then this event is for you, as we will present 3 different tenders and funding programs to put the money to work.


You will get the most important information about the tenders, learn about the evaluation criteria, the pre-selection process, important dates and deadlines for the application and many tips on how to successfully participate in the tender.


Funding and programs from the Slovene Enterprise Fund, which we will talk about

  • P2 - receive a grant of 54,000 EUR for the development of products/services.
  • SK75 - receive a convertible loan of 75,000 EUR for sales growth and expansion into new markets
  • SI -SK - double the investment concluded with a private investor. The so-called co-investment ranges from EUR 100,000 to EUR 600,000
  • Review of other sources of financing offered by the Fund and SID Bank.
  • Content support in the form of advice, mentoring and acceleration programs available in the local and national business support environment.



Hybrid event

Although we would prefer to hang out with everyone in person, our hands are a bit tied due to the current situation. Nonetheless, we will be allowing 8 selected companies to participate live who, based on the information provided in the registration, are the "best fit" for the above tenders and will express a desire to get personal advice from the guests.


30 participants will be able to join us online, via the Zoom platform.


Immediate feedback on whether your idea is a good fit for the tender

As part of the event, you will receive immediate feedback on whether your idea is suitable for one of the above tenders. Apply for a personal consultation (see application form).
