Explore the business opportunities Slovenia can offer you!

Slovenia is a small country (half the size of the Netherlands) with some 2 million inhabitants bordering on Italy, Austria, Hungary and Croatia. Slovenia is one of the “greenest” countries in the world. Literally in terms of natural beauty and figuratively in terms of sustainability. Due to its location and history Slovenia traditionally focused its attention on the West and therefore was one of the first countries in Central and Eastern Europe to become a member the EU. This also applies for the introduction of the euro, joining NATO and participating in the Schengen Agreement. But what makes Slovenia really special is its innovative character. Many Slovenian entrepreneurs are winners of international innovation awards for airplanes, boats, architecture, sports, wine and many more products. According to some, Slovenia is the Silicon Valley of Europe. Curious? There are daily flights from Amsterdam, Brussels and Frankfurt to Ljubljana and the infrastructure of the country is excellent.
