At the start of 2013, the Slovenian economic environment became richer with the introduction of a new institution that represented an important step towards the achievement of greater efficiency and competitiveness of the Slovenian economy. The Public Agency for Entrepreneurship, Internationalisation, Fore­ign Investments and Technology, or SPIRIT Slovenia for short, began executing its functions at the start of 2013.

The Agency’s vision is to be an effective, sustainable development-oriented institution that facilitates growth and development of the Slovenian economy through its activities in the fields of entrepreneurship, technology, innovation, foreign direct investment, internationalisation and promotion of the Slovenian economy and Slovenia.

The Agency’s mission is to be an active player in the business environment and ensure the competitiveness and promotion of the Slovenian economy. The SPIRIT Slovenia Public Agency strives to become an institution that – in cooperation with the Ministry of Economic Development and Technology and other stakeholders – offers Slovenian companies effective and comprehensive support for development and promotion in the global competitive market. The Agency will pursue its mission through the linking of knowledge and competencies from all key, inter-related areas, which represent a pre-condition for the competitiveness of the economy, with the objective of increasing added value, creating quality jobs and building long-term competitiveness.
