Southeast European Network of Business Start-up Centers and Incubators - SENSI

The Southeast European Network of Business Start-up Centers and Incubators (SENSI) was established in Tuzla, Bosnia and Herzegovina on 20.Oct.2006.
By creating its network, SENSI aims to develop business support for young/starting entrepreneurs, and improving the quality of and accessibility to these services, in order to increase their chance of long-term business success.
We believe that Southeast European Universities, Governments and Business sector should jointly promote entrepreneurship. Efforts in providing education on entrepreneurship as well as concrete support to starting companies needs to be intensified. Entrepreneurial centres such as business start-up centres and business incubators have proven to be useful tools for accelerating economic growth and entrepreneurship promotion.
The network is currently consiting of 11 members, but is rapidly expanding. All existing Business Centers and Incubators in Southeast Europe are invited to join.
The members of the SENSI network support each other by providing, free of charge, to each other the following services:

  1. Exchange of best practices;
  2. Exchange of training curricula, syllabi, training materials and trainers and experts;
  3. Mobility of entrepreneurs, students, professors and experts between the centres;
  4. Joint study visits and conferences on a rotational basis between network members;
  5. Joint study visits to similar centres outside of South-eastern Europe;
  6. The organisation of a joint regional business plan competition;
  7. Supporting regional business opportunities."
