Social/Positive Impact: The Bond Mentoring Networks project aims to increase the level of entrepreneurial activities in Croatia by creating a more favorable entrepreneurial environment in all regions of the Republic of Croatia. Through this initiative, entrepreneurs are provided access to professional, advisory, and expert services in all stages of business development and across all aspects of business, reducing asymmetry in access to business knowledge and skills, partners, services, and information.
