Startup Breakfast: EU Info Point “EU programs – possibilities for my business”


STP Niš and the EU Info Point have organized a Startup Breakfast on Friday, November 19, where the discussion topic was “EU programs – possibilities for my business.”

The development of the idea and the concept makes up a significant part of work for anyone who is starting their own business, but the fact is that many young companies do not have enough resources for investing in starting and development. When facing these challenges, some of the EU business support programs can be of great assistance.

The projects the EU finances in Serbia encourage new job openings, as well as the economic and technological progress, which, when combined, contributes to a better economic environment.

During the Startup Breakfast, Danijela Vučić, the manager of the EU Info Point, presented several of the available EU funds, spoke about financing possibilities, and presented some of the success stories.

Small and medium-sized companies, as well as companies from Serbia, can apply for financial resources through several projects and programs, such as the Innovation Fund, EU PRO Plus, EU for Cultural Heritage and Tourism, Erasmus for young entrepreneurs, while numerous financial instruments are also available through the European Investment Bank (EIB) and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD).

The EU Info Point in Niš is a part of the EUINFO network of Information Centers of the EU Delegation in Serbia, whose mission is primarily to inform about and present activities that the EU is conducting in Serbia and the possibilities available to everyone.
