Roadshow Novo mesto is an excellent opportunity for all individuals, teams and companies with innovative ideas and global growth potential. We will present the opportunities for obtaining financial sources for a successful launch and development of the company, why you should participate in the competition Start:up Slovenia, and where you can get the necessary knowledge and experience for faster business development.

We prepared the following for you: 

  • Presentation of lean and agile methods of product-building, ensuring rapid progress and getting direct feedback from the market.
  • Presentation of Slovene Enterprise Fund’s programmes for startups in 2016 and products P2, SK75 and SK200 for obtaining a grant in the amount of 54,000 € (P2), convertible loan in the amount of 75,000 € (SK75) or a public equity investment in the amount of 200,000 € (SK200).
  • Presentation of the Start:up Slovenia competition, which wishes to recognize the best startup companies in the earliest development stage (problem – solution), and support them technically and in media. Participation in the Start:up Slovenia competition is an obligatory condition for applying for Slovene Enterprise Fund’s P2 grant. The company has to be legally and formally established in Slovenia between 1. 1. 2015 and 29. 2. 2016 (date of registering the company in court counts).
  • Presentation of what the local business ecosystem has to offer to your business development.
