WHAT WE DO
01 / TAKE YOUR SPOT
Take your spot is an event organized every 2 months where young startups and anyone who wants to become one can mingle with other startup founders, companies, media representatives, and alike.
02 / STARTUP HEROES
This concept is oriented towards the "startup grind" principle where interaction and exchange of information and experience with successful companies in Bosnia and Herzegovina for startups is established.
03 / ECOSYSTEM
We believe that the current ecosystem is not well connected at all when it comes to startups. That can present a huge disadvantage because cooperations are increasingly harder that way. We plan to create a functioning ecosystem where startups can connect and work together.
04 / EDUCATION
Currently most educations for startups are done by people who never had their own startup nor any knowledge in the same. That ultimately leads to misconceptions that 2000 KM are enough to found a startup, that it is imperative to write a business plan or how to approach markets. We want to address those issues and provide a real picture of what it means to launch a startup and the tools nobody talks about in the business.
05 / OTHER SIDE OF IT
There is an important segment in entrepreneurship that is often overlooked: the human factor. Almost no startup training program addresses factors such as how to deal with stress, how to have empathy for team members and workers, whether it is okay to have a burnout, or seek help because most people have a stigma about these things. We plan to put a huge emphasis on that factor.
06 / DATABASE
Creating a central database of all startups to easily view their activities and information. With the existence of a central database, connecting startups with representatives of other projects or with international companies is easier. Furthermore that way we can easily connect startups with business development agencies and activities later on.
BosnianStartups was formed out of the sheer wish to change the current startup landscape in Bosnia and Herzegovina. We see startups having a hard time day in day out and we decided to change that by establishing this non-profit and combine our knowledge, experience and effort to create an environment where startup can thrive.
The vision we share is to aid as much startup as possible in their journey to grow, develop and achive impact in all areas of business. From agriculture, over fintech up to medical startups. Our vision is to form an ecosystem that can change the current situation in the country is facing with innovations and solutions.
Our approach is to provide all necessary guidance and education to achieve our vision. We connect with the community and listen to their needs in order to systematically address everything startups are having a hard time with.
