The Start-up Nation Programme will have an additional session this year, within the limit of the financial resource left after the evaluation of the files registered in the current stage, the deadline for registering in this programme being Friday, 14 July, at 20:00, the Business Environment, Trade and Entrepreneurship Ministry informs on Thursday.
According to an institution release, about 9,000 business plans have been filed so far.
“There is, however, a great number of potential candidates who couldn’t complete the registration procedure, because they couldn’t establish the new companies in due time – a prerequisite of the programme – given the overburdening of the technical infrastructure of the National Trade Register Office and the National Agency for Fiscal Administration,” the release says.
Therefore, right after the evaluation of the files registered in the current state, and within the left financial resource, the Business Environment, Trade and Entrepreneurship Ministry will organise a new session of registrations.
The Start-up Nation Programme this year has over 1.7 million lei worth of funding, which ensure, according to law, the support of the activity of 10,000 new companies established after 31 January 2017.
The registration in the Start-Up Programme will not be extended until 28 July, as relevant minister Ilan Laufer announced on Facebook on Wednesday afternoon, so that the candidacy registration session will end on Friday, 14 July, ministry representatives told Agerpres on Thursday.
