News / EFSE facilitates prizes and visibility for women entrepreneurs in tech
Tech Boost is a regional initiative driven by the Entrepreneurship Academy of the European Fund for Southeast Europe (EFSE) to support Western Balkan startups in tech. The initiative concluded the second cycle of its programme in March 2021. During the cycle, the programme sent participants to high-profile international competitions, where two women-led technology startups were awarded a prize.
Tech Boost aims to tap the Western Balkan region’s innovative potential by connecting startup accelerators from Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, North Macedonia and Serbia onto one platform. By connecting organisations from these countries, Tech Boost endeavours to build their capacities to develop local entrepreneurs. Conceived and funded by the EFSE Entrepreneurship Academy, the initiative is being implemented together with Europe’s leading B2B accelerator, Startup Wise Guys.
The European Fund for Southeast Europe is a public-private partnership that is supported with funds from various private investors and donor agencies, including the European governments and the European Union.
