Business council project



The challenges the project deals with are:

Difficulties in obtaining business finance,
Limited access of entrepreneurs to business know-how and to general information and contacts.

The project will overcome the lack of support services for developing competitive products-services and of access / know-how regarding cost saving technologies and inadequate human development and skills. 
The main result of the project is the improvement of the business environment in the cross-border area. By achieving a partnership between business representatives and local administrations, one of the main risks identified in any business development plan – political and administrative risk – will be offset. Through this project, connectivity will be achieved between business representatives from each of the priority industries, they will be able to discuss the problems and challenges that everyone faces and discuss good practices and know-how for common problems and constraints.The target group of the project are all business representatives in the priority sectors. This includes both young entrepreneurs and women entrepreneurs. By gaining access to participation in a business council, everyone considered unequal will achieve equality and will be able to express their problems and obstacles that they must overcome. It is the more unequal groups of entrepreneurs who will be more supported by the formation of business councils, because they will overcome a barrier with their inclusion, which will be freely accessible to everyone.
