Business Innovation Programs (BIP)

Business Innovation Programs (BIP) is a non-profit organization, founded in 2006, with the aim of contributing to the creation of new jobs and the development of expertise in the area of economic development.

Our vision is a sustainable, dynamic market economy based on innovation, learning and knowledge in Serbia, offering everyone equal opportunities for participation and development. Development of entrepreneurial skills, sustainable economic development, creation of new jobs and local and regional development depend on the private sector's performance and support of the capable public sector. Our mission is to contribute to the creation of new jobs and the development of expertise in the field of economic development as effective methods for building society. We believe that learning is the most important process, and knowledge is the most important resource. Initially, BIP Serbia was part of the Business Innovation Programs Norway network with which is still closely cooperating today.

The strategic goals of the BIP, translated into four main programs are:

• Contribution to the promotion of youth employment and employability in Serbia

• Support for growth and development of start-ups and small and medium-sized enterprises

• Development of innovative business solutions and creating knowledge

• Supporting socio-economic development of the community
