After announcing two new tenders SK50 and SK200 and launching two new business accelerators Start:up Geek House and Go:Global Slovenia, which offer the chance for obtaining a 50,000 € convertible loan or a 200,000 € equity investment, we are now organizing an all-Slovenian roadshow with events that will present:

  • the content, and legal and formal requirements of both new tenders,
  • participation conditions for both accelerators,
  • lean and agile start-up methods for product and business model development.

 We will also:

  • personally advise entrepreneurs on preparing and submitting their application to both tenders,
  • talk about the most frequently asked questions and dilemmas of entrepreneurs deciding to apply to the tender.

At workshops in all four cities, successful entrepreneurs will share their experiences with launching, growing and financing a company. In Ljubljana, we will be joined by Matej Zalar, co-founder of the successful high-tech company Visionect.
