The four-day Balkan Tech Summit, held from October 16th to 19th, welcomed over 20 American investors, representatives of business sectors from the various US states, alongside our local and regional partners. We visited Podgorica, Kotor, Ulcinj, and Cetinje. These locations witnessed the organization of more of the five panels and open discussions, engaging more than 70 participants. The Summit marked a formalization of the establishment of the first fully private venture capital fund investing in Balkan innovations.
This event provided a unique networking opportunity, fostering the exchange of experiences and knowledge with a significant number of investors and experts from both America and the Balkans.
Beyond them, we brought together representatives from the Government of Montenegro, American Embassy, the regional and local business, IT, and startup communities, all to promote the potential of Balkan startups, local companies, entrepreneurs, decision-makers, officials, and other success stories from Montenegro and the region.
Our General Partners, Peter Adams, Darko Ivanović, and Nenad Novović, expressed their conviction that the establishment of BTF would significantly enhance Montenegro's position in the investment, research, and innovation sectors, placing our country on the regional, European, and global map.
The Balkan Tech Summit was organized in collaboration with the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, Hyatt Regency Kotor Bay Resort, Hotel Ramada, and the Assembly of the Municipality of Ulcinj.
