More than half of all start-up businesses fail within the first year, around 80% don’t survive five years, and over 90% don’t make it beyond 10 years.
The good news is that most businesses encounter the same problems and sometimes only a little bit of help can make the difference between going bankrupt or growing and prospering.
We are expert professionals from Croatian diaspora, with many years of combined experience in Western free-market economies. We are committed to helping Croatian SME’s become an engine of growth and sturdy backbone of society.
