"Dear ladies and gentlemen!
My name is Sergiy Balchenko. I have extensive experience in audit and trust services in Eastern European countries. I would like to introduce the Nonprofit Fund “Start in Slovakia”, whose activities are aimed at supporting Ukrainians in their starting up, setting up business or expansion existing business to Slovakia — a country with untapped potential.
In difficult conditions of the war, the Fund helps Ukrainian businesses to reorient and integrate their work in Slovakia. With the help of the Fund's founders, you will be able to open a business by creating a separate or expansion existing Ukrainian business to one of the leading and fast-growing countries in the European Union.
Why does Ukrainian business choose the Fund “Start in Slovakia”?
Because there are privileges to start a business in Slovakia. The Fund provides free assistance in registering a business. In the future, you will be accompanied by the best consultants in Slovakia, who are the Fund’s co-founders.
It is a well-known fact that it is quite difficult to open an account in European banks for both a company and an individual. The founder of the Fund — the leading bank “CSOB” will help with this. If you or your family members have legal issues when registering and operating in Slovakia or the European Union, the advantage is that one of the founders of the Fund is the leading Slovak law firm bpv BRAUN PARTNERS. You need to keep records, pay taxes or file financial and statistical reports, accrue salaries to employees, audit financial statements — for this purpose, there is another founder of the Fund — BDO in Slovakia, which is a member of BDO firms, one of the largest international network of auditors and consultants for the number of offices and staff. If you need to find a job in the labor market and train specialists for your business, the founder — Balanced HR, which is in the TOP-10 largest HR agencies in Slovakia, will do that easily and professionally.
Finally, the main advantage — the general founder of the Fund is the Public Association “Slovak Association of Exporters and Importers SAEI”, which has already helped hundreds of foreign companies to find partners in Slovakia and succeed in their businesses.
The Fund’s webpage has all the necessary information to register and get help. It contains information about the online training “Fourteen steps of registering a company in Slovakia”. After a short course of study, you will find out that registering a Ukrainian business in Slovakia is easy.
