Why did you apply for SEW?
What is your goal in organizing an event for Startup Europe Week?
What would you give to your local community?
We will provide a unique concept of presentations and activities which will motivate participants to go deeper in the topic, research and gather the needed information to start their own business.
What do you think your area needs in order to be a startup-friendly zone?
The area of Bitola mostly needs cooperation and good networking. Businesses in Bitola work but they do not cooperate and network in order to improve their joint working. This is the main thing we miss, and through SEW Bitola we are trying to build up on it.
What could Startup Europe and the European Commission do more to develop the startup ecosystem?
For our local community, we believe that the delivery of information to the businesses about the available support through the European Commission is needed. Here, we have innovative and progressive businesses, but the lack of information related to broadening the work, finding other sources of finances and the project management working of the small businesses as a modern organizational concept is not very common.
