Innovative and unordinary financial models for small and medium enterprises

We invite you to take part in the one day training focusing on the utility and availability of out of the ordinary financial models for small and medium enterprises. Many of the trainings on this subject have put the accent on bank credits differing only in interest rates. In this training there will be presented more than 10 alternative financial models for small and medium enterprises (crowdfunding, business angels, accelerators, innovation funds, European funds, bilateral funds, venture capital etc.).

Main goals:

  • to inform the attendees on the more than 10 nonconventional ways of financing which are at entrepreneurial disposal,
  • to motivate them to be proactive in their search and usage of these funds,
  • networking between entrepreneurs and consultants/institutions which would guide them and help them in this process.
