The business accelerator Go:Global Slovenia provides everything you need for starting quick international expansion, in the form of capital as well as with knowledge and international contacts.
- 200,000 € of capital in the form of an equity investment (in collaboration with the Slovene Enterprise Fund and the product SK200), which allows companies to start expanding to foreign markets, further develop products and overcome the need for financing until the next investment round of venture capital funds.
- The investment preparation programme, where entrepreneurs learn all the rules of equity financing, prepare an application form, but also meet the investors for additionally attracting private capital
- Go:Global for Growth, an intense supplementary educational programme with experienced national and international entrepreneurs who help recipients of public funds with professional organisation of the company and fast global growth
- A personal start-up mentor who has experience with expanding a company to foreign markets and helps the business team with strategic decisions, international contacts and expansion to individual markets.

This allows the business team to wholly focus on global breakthrough and fast growth. The administrative help is offered by the assigned business consultant
