Are you in the process of starting a business in the USA? Do you plan on having your co-founder come from outside the EU? Is your startup attracted to block chain technologies? Are you investing money outside the EU? Are you a fintech startup? If you answered "yes" to at least one question, then you should know the law in prevention of money laundering and financing of terrorism. There is a draft law on amendments of the law, which is available at http://www.pisrs.si/Pis.web/pregledPredpisa?id=ZAKO8019.
In Start:up Slovenia, in cooperation with the Ministry of Economic Development and Technology, we collect constructive comments and suggestions on the proposed changes. You can also easily support changes to the law with your voice! We will submit your collected proposals to the responsible office!
The startup register was established and is led by the Slovene Enterprise Fund. Its creation was defined by the adoption of the Promotion of Investment Act. The startup register provides an overview of the startup ecosystems in one place and gives confirmation to the companies that they are startups, which can be useful in applying for tenders, both Slovenian and European. It also strengthens Slovenia's role as a land of startups and informs decision-makers to give more attention to them. At the same time, the registry also serves as a basis for granting benefits to startups.
Amazon Europe will enable Slovenian companies to conduct business on Amazon and Google Merchant platforms following the activities carried out by the Ministry of Economic Development and Technology. This has not been possible so far, since the Stripe payment system, which is now available, was absent in Slovenia.
Facilitating the employment of foreigners in startup companies will be made possible by amending the employment, self-employment and work of foreigners’ act. It will also bring about simplification and an exception to the regular process of employment of foreigners in startup companies. This is already in place but any feedback for this measure is welcome.
At the same time, the eBDP project is under way, which will also enable the digitization of recruitment processes.
The process of eliminating the requirement for investors to be physically present to establish or recapitalize a business is already underway. With support, you can express your approval of this action and you can share your experience with us.
