This year’s Addiko SME Academy was attended by key people from more than 50 small and medium-sized enterprises, and 47 participants successfully passed the entire education process and were ceremoniously presented with certificates.

The President of the Management Board of Addiko banka Banja Luka, Srđan Kondić, pointed out that Addiko banka constantly listens to the needs of clients, especially small and medium-sized enterprises.

“Through conversations with our clients, we recognized the need to integrate business successors into existing company managements. As a result, together with our partners from the European Fund for Southeast Europe, we decided to provide free education and training for clients. With the Addiko SME Academy, we covered over 50 companies that employ more than 4,000 employees in the Republika Srpska and Brčko District, and therefore, the academy that Addiko Bank Banjaluka conducted has a multiple positive effect on the market.” concluded Kondić, who invited all socially responsible companies to get involved and contribute to the development of the business community.

Participants see the Addiko SME Academy as a significant support and confirmation for their efforts to improve their business.

“I believe that an Academy of this type helps a lot in the further development of all people from the aspect of business, both in personal development and in the aspect of the business that we represent”, said Damir Pušić, executive director of the company Info media group doo Banjaluka, a participant of the academy, and added that he hopes that the Academy of this format will become a tradition.

Milena Vještica from the company BKT doo Banjaluka said that the Addiko Academy provided her with a lot of useful information, which, she adds, already gives results when applied in business.

“The atmosphere during the Addiko SME Academy was excellent and it was very interactive without a single moment of just listening. We were all involved and it was a lot of fun,” said Milena, who added that the Addiko SME Academy, apart from knowledge, was also the initiator of mutual networking.

The Addiko SME Academy project was supported by the European Fund for Southeast Europe.

“We are extremely honored to have organized the SME Academy for leaders in small and medium enterprises in cooperation with our long-term partner Addiko Bank Banjaluka. Supporting the development of this segment of the economy is particularly important in today’s challenging times, which require adequate positioning of companies in order to remain competitive on the market.” said Mejra Juzbašić Bajgorić, Regional Director of Finance in Motion, investment advisor of the European Fund for Southeast Europe, EFSE.

Addiko Bank Banjaluka announces that in the coming period it will also be the initiator of activities that will contribute to the improvement of the overall economic situation in the Republic of Srpska and Brčko District.
