The Innovation Investment Fund has within its mission to create concrete impact on the economies of the Western Balkans by providing opportunities for growth, supporting and encouraging young entrepreneurs while decreasing the gap between new business ideas and investment opportunities. The scope of INNVEST is to foster innovation across sectors as an important drive for positive change.
INNVEST brings together leading entrepreneurs, investors, prime investors, policy makers and merges a vast pool of ideas from across the innovative spectrum to address national and regional economic challenges.
INNVEST has three main pillars of success:
- 1. Fostering Entrepreneurship; We help the businesses and corporations that become part of our network to innovate from within through dedicated programs, incubators and accelerators.
- 2. Start-up promotion; We identify, mentor and integrate within our network new and innovative business ideas at different levels of their development.
- 3. Find investment opportunities: The third pillar of success is cross cutting and helps to integrate our major goals by bridging the gap of investment opportunities and start-ups. Through different forms, programs and activities we enable matchmaking opportunities, within and outside of our network, for new business ideas to meet with angel investors.
