Overview

We contribute to Croatia’s economic development by providing equity financing to new, potentially transformative businesses and social initiatives. Proficio also assists established companies to restructure and experiment with new ideas. As long-term investors, we look to benefit not just from each individual investment but also from helping to create a more robust overall economy, where motivated business and community leaders can realize their potential without emigrating. We are proud of our track record of supporting some of the better-known and more successful Croatian start-ups and non-profit initiatives. We are also content with our failures – because there are rarely more helpful learning experiences.
