Making every start-up a success story

Slovenia's economy has seen a steep rise since it joined the EU in 2004. Today, the country is an attractive business location and a popular destination for investors – and the Slovenian start-up scene is also growing steadily. What does it take to set up and develop a successful business? Above all, a good idea, a lot of energy and determination, a little luck and good people – and, last but not least, the right partner to answer your legal questions and help you with industry networking.


That's why we founded CMS equIP: Our programme is aimed at start-ups in the technology sector and supports them in every phase of their development with competent advice tailored to that sector. We even offer reduced prices because our credo is: Innovative ideas must not fail due to unaffordable legal advice.
