Making every start-up a success story

Croatia's economy continues to expand and the start-up scene is also growing, even if the conditions are not always easy. The difficulty of accessing capital and investors as well as the complex Croatian legal system are often obstacles to Croatian start-ups.


This is exactly where CMS equIP comes in: With our programme, we offer innovative start-ups from the technology sector support at all stages of their life cycle, in matters of legal advice as well as networking in the sector – because both are decisive for the long-term success of a young company. Our credo is: Competent legal advice must be affordable – therefore equIP also means competent advice at favourable prices. Because a good idea, energy and determination, a little luck and the right people are undoubtedly important, but not always enough to be successful.
