The EIB Group, in partnership with the the Slovene Export and Development Bank (SID Banka) and the Ministry of Economic Development and Technology, hosted a corporate seminar to present financing opportunities and the extensive range of support available to innovative and growing businesses in Slovenia on Friday 12th June 2015.
The morning seminar consisted of a series of concise product presentations followed by two parallel interactive workshops covering the different financing options available to companies and financial intermediaries. It was open to CEOs, CFOs and top management of innovative companies (from large SMEs to corporates) in the automotive, ICT, biotech and industrial sectors, as well as financial intermediaries, financial advisory organizations and industry associations.
This event also provided an excellent opportunity to network with the EIB and EIF operational teams.
Both the EU and the EIB Group intend to more than double their combined support for research and innovation in Europe over the next 7 years, making more than EUR 24bn available.
