The event will take place at Jahorina near Sarajevo.

The Balkan Venture Forum (BkVF) is the region’s leading investment and innovation forum that has attracted so far a total of more than 1500 attendees. Besides the diverse and rich programme of interesting panels, speeches, networking and match-making opportunities, the event will also include a pitching competition where 40 selected start-ups will present their venture in front of expert panelists, competing for investors’ interest as well as exclusive prizes and benefits.

On May 14, 2014 start-ups have the opportunity to participate at a half-day coaching session for increasing their investor and growth readiness.
