Mainstreaming alternative finance mechanisms for entrepreneurs, start-ups and SMEs

As Serbia has not yet enabled needed regulatory framework for crowd investing,  crowdlending or alternative investment funds, despite the growing need for new mechanisms of support among the target group, whis project we will focused on best  examples of practices in Visegrad countries, research the Serbian context, as well provide more insights, data and incentives for SMEs, startups and enterprises to turn to alternative finance mechanisms as financing tool.
