SPOT offices

Within the framework of state support services for business entities, a new national service called SPOT  was launched in spring 2018. With that, the former VEM offices were renamed in SPOT offices (hereinafter SPOT (VEM) offices). The SPOT system – the Slovenian Business Point combines four levels. 

1. The portals

The first level is the portal itself. SPOT portal is dedicated to domestic companies and entrepreneurs, while the EUGO  portal is dedicated to foreign companies and entrepreneurs. 

The EUGO portal provides accurate information about the procedures required for performing business activities in the Republic of Slovenia. This method helps Slovenia meet the requirements of European directives and enables simple and friendlier operations in the market of the Republic of Slovenia.

2. SPOT Registration - electronic processes with the help of consultants

The second level of the SPOT system are the physical »registration« points for supporting business entities. On these points, the user can perform procedures on the SPOT portal with the help of a consultant. 

3. SPOT Consulting - Business consulting and regional integration

The third level of the SPOT system represents 12 regional (on for each statistical region) consulting points. Their purpose is to provide expert assistance in various fields such as counseling, workshops organization, training, exchange of good practices, regional integration, co-creation of supportive environment for business subjects, etc. What the third level of the SPOT systems offers is a significantly wider range of services that help potential/future entrepreneurs to raise market competitiveness. 

4. SPOT Global - Assistance to exporters and investors
