Slovenian business diaspora gets digital hub

"The search for business contacts and connections has already gone digital, but the time of searching for business news on one portal, finding business contacts on another and again looking for business cooperation opportunities on a third is over," the press release says.

"People in the business world don't even have time for that, so they can often miss out on a potential new business connection, contact, news or event," the network added.

The SLO Global platform, organised by the Slovenian Global Business Network with the support of the Office for Slovenians Abroad, the Foreign Ministry and the Slovenian Embassy in Brasilia, is focused exclusively on facilitating business ties between Slovenians who live and do business abroad and would like to connect with other Slovenian business people and companies around the world or in Slovenia.

This new digital tool enables people to search and/or offer products, services and business opportunities around the world, and includes a directory of Slovenian economic institutions, representative offices, associations, chambers and business clubs around the world.

In addition, it provides up-to-date business news, information on business events in Slovenia and around the world, as well as successful business stories.

The platform is largely open to the public, but to access business opportunities or to search for and offer products or services, a (legal) person has to log in to the system or become a member. Membership will be free in the starting months.
