For the third year in a row, Business Review is organizing SME’s HOW TO, an event dedicated to providing fresh and relevant information for the SMEs sector. The event promises to bring together entrepreneurs, policymakers and SMEs support organizations from the private and public sectors, and other intermediary bodies that will share their energy and ideas on how to improve the ecosystem for innovative enterprises. The main challenges remain access to finance, bureaucracy and lack of support for small business owners. We have taken on the challenge to provide business owners, entrepreneurs and managers with information on accessing finance and cost-saving solutions. Learn how to access EU funds and state grants especially designed for SMEs, while getting the full perspective on what private sector players and private investment funds have to offer. The event is packed with relevant case studies and success stories told by the entrepreneurs that have the know- how. From marketing to technology and HR insights you will get the complete toolkit you need to succeed.

The event will be held in Romanian, with English – Romanian translation if needed.
