Tatjana Zabasu, managing partner of SCV, will talk in more details about the requirements and expectations of an investor, what does it mean for a company to be investor ready, and answer frequently asked questions.

South Central Ventures is a € 40 million fund dedicated primarily to early stage and growth investments, of companies in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, and Serbia, launched last October. The current portfolio consists of 5 young tech companies, all applying IT in different sectors, from agriculture to productivity management.

This time, the venture fund is seeking to invest in Albanian startup investment ready companies that have already reached traction in the market but need more funds to grow. For this reason, the fund’s ‘seed pocket’, € 1.5 million is allocated for investments of up to € 100 000 per company. The majority of the fund is allocated for early stage and growth investments of up to € 3 million per company.
