Davorin Stetner, President of the EBAN CEE Community, President of CRANE (Croatian Business Angels Network) and organiser of Zagreb Connect announced a major initiative today which brings together stock exchanges and business angel networks to find and support the best start-ups and scale-ups in the Central Eastern European Region.
Starting as of 1 January 2018, each EBAN CEE Community Member will work with the Stock Exchange in their countries to launch a nation-wide search for the best start-ups and scale-ups. The results will be known as of 15 May, at which time the “Best of the Best of the CEE countries” will then compete to win “Made in CEE“. The winner will be announced by the CEE Stock Exchange and EBAN CEE Member Presidents, taking place the 2018 EBAN Annual Congress.
All winners and runners-up of the national CEE Country competitions will receive mentoring and counsel on getting listed, as well as mentoring and coaching from Financial Experts and Business Angels.
The “Made in the CEE” initiative grew out of the visionary “Made in Romania” initiative, started last year in cooperation with the Bucharest Stock Exchange, the Romanian Business Angels Network, and EBAN and is now spreading to all of the CEE countries under the leadership of the EBAN CEE Community.
