News archive - Support for start-ups in Montenegro

On 21 June 2018, the Horizon 2020 Policy Support Facility (PSF) Specific Support to Montenegro kick started in Brussels, Belgium. The Montenegrin government has asked for policy advice in building a friendlier environment and a supportive ecosystem for start-up enterprises in the country.

The kick-off meeting involved the representatives of the Montenegrin authorities, the European Commission and the PSF panel of independent experts on business innovation and entrepreneurship from Poland, Finland, France and Slovenia. The objective of this policy support initiative is to provide tailored advice and practical recommendations to help the Montenegrin government in three focus areas:

  • Legislative changes to facilitate a start-up friendly environment 
  • How to set up funding schemes for start-ups
  • Developing an organisational model for a functional start-up ecosystem.

The key outcome of the project will be a report that will present these policy recommendations along with good practice examples to follow, analysis of the current state of play, and the challenges faced by entrepreneurs and start-ups.

The exercise will last for seven months, from June 2018 until February 2019, and will include two field missions to Montenegro by the experts, as well as a final event to present the results in Montenegro.
