 CEE FREIRAUM is a project that has emerged as an initiative of SCE from Munich and the Foundation for Innovation, Technology and Knowledge Transfer – FITT from Tuzla as an idea for startups and innovations from Central and Eastern Europe to support and come to the international market.

The main goal of CEE FREIRAUM is to scout and educate young startups in BiH and the region. Startups will have the opportunity to develop new business ideas through education and mentoring by experts in the field of entrepreneurship. The goal is to support the best startups financially, give them a chance to emerge on the international market, present their ideas to the world’s largest companies and, in that sense, participate in an international event such as MUST Summit 2019.

CEE FREIRAUM wants to support the work of incubators and universities in BiH and the region, bring together young and educated people and allow them to turn their business ideas into reality.
