Objectives

The main focus of this workshop is to exchange best practices in supporting investment readiness for technology-based scale-ups and start-ups in South East Europe and the Western Balkans and understand the requirements for developing bankable projects. Policy initiatives, implementation processes, instruments and capacity building activities will be presented, as well as first-hand experiences and case studies from across the region and beyond.

The conclusions of this event are expected to feed into broader political developments, and to contribute to existing and tailor-made instruments that can wider support innovative companies in the area.
