The allocated funds are used for initial financing (seed financing) and financing for business development (scaling-up).

Seed funding

Initial financing is the resources / means to launch an initiative that would stimulate the development of a business idea or possibly the contribution of others, including the participation of a potential entrepreneur. Initial funding is provided for idea validation, prototype development, support in market research, training, marketing, business venture registration, etc. The purpose of this type of funding is to assist in the project establishment phase, which is provided before making the final form or plan for future project expansion.

The Program provides financial support for:

  • training;
  • making a business plan;
  • prototyping;
  • registration costs.

In the event that the business venture has successfully completed the initial phase on its own, it is eligible to apply for support in financing the development of the business venture. The funds determined by the Program are intended for financial support to newly established entrepreneurs, micro and small companies, which have been registered for at least six months, and at most 36 months from the submission of the application.

Initial funding is provided as a matter of priority for the ventures included in the Program. Business ventures can also be applied for if they have not been included in the Program, provided that their idea is assessed as an idea that has the potential of development, youth employment or can be classified as “social entrepreneurship”. All applications will be analyzed by the Commission made up of experts in the field of entrepreneurship, ie the business sector to which the submitted idea belongs.

Financing is also possible by applying for a convertible loan. A convertible loan is a short-term loan on favorable terms created for young entrepreneurs. The loan is in the period of debt and until the moment of maturity can be converted into an ownership share. In the case of conversion of a loan into an ownership share, the conversion includes the corresponding interest on the loan, which in this case does not require the payment of interest.

Funding for business development (scaling-up)

Persons who, previously, were the founders and owners of at most one business entity, which was deleted from the register before the announcement of the public invitation, can also apply for funds under the Program.

Investments that can be financed under this Program include:

Upgrading or reconstruction of business or production premises that is either owned by a natural / legal person or there is a long-term lease agreement which regulates the method of investment calculation;
Purchase of equipment (new or used – not older than five years) provided that the Supplier of the equipment is a legal entity;


Permanent working capital.

For the funds of other donors, the method of implementation (non-refundable allocation of funds or investments) will be determined by the partner in question when formalizing the cooperation with GOPA mbH / Youth Employment Project.
