Regional Access to Finance Forum | Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina | June 19, 2012

Latest update: June 13

Dear Colleagues and Partners,


We cordially invite you to a high level Access to Finance Forum that is scheduled for June19, 2012 and will be held in Sarajevo at hotel Bristol.

Against the backdrop of news about the escalating financial crisis, high unemployment and another recession in Europe, it is important to make the most of existing opportunities rather than passively witnessing negative events. That is why we are organizing a regional ‘Access to Finance’ event which aims to present today’s most interesting investment and business opportunities from Southeast Europe. We are inviting you to join us at this event where you will build partnerships, create networks and gain new perspectives for facing today’s challenges.

Access to Finance Forum is aiming at exposing existing investment and business opportunities. We would like to introduce the prospects of Venture Capital and Private Equity industry, Business Angels network and other innovative sources to the region of Bosnia and Herzegovina as well to other neighboring countries. Apart from the introductory part, we would like to initiate discussions based on lessons learned and experience some of the countries like Croatia, Slovenia, Serbia and other countries represented by different investors to help the audience to draw the conclusions of obstacles and most importantly the potential that would help the economy of each of the neighboring countries to grow. Based on the initial conversations with the investors, we expect high attendance on their behalf. This event will also introduce Western Balkan Enterprise Development and Innovation Facility (EDIF) to the region, followed by high donor representatives that are standing behind this initiative.


We hope we were successful in giving you an intro into the event, with highlights to its importance and the ultimate outcome. Having that said, we hope you would honorsus with your favorable answer!


For any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us! Looking forward to seeing you in Sarajevo!
