CEPOR – SME’s & Entrepreneurship Policy Centre was founded in 2001 as an independent policy centre, focused dominantly on policy issues of the SMEs and development of entrepreneurial capacity on the institutional and individual level. CEPOR’s mission is to influence the public-political environment emphasizing the role of entrepreneurship and SMEs in the development of Croatian economy.

Main activities are conducting independent policy research of the SME sector to provide objective assessment of problems and policy recommendations to government institutions in order to build efficient non-discriminatory policies for the development of SMEs.

CEPOR is the first independent, research focused entrepreneurship supporting institution in Croatia recognizing the importance of the business transfer. Business transfer issue is insufficiently emphasized in Croatia and therefore CEPOR initiated series of activities in order to promote the importance of this issue among all relevant stakeholders:

  • Promotion of business transfer issue through partnership in organization of annual conferences on family business, since 2009;
  • Organization of round table discussions, workshops and networking events on business transfer in SMEs in Croatia;
  • Publication of policy briefs “The development and sustainability of family business in Croatia” and “Legal aspects in family business inheritance”;
  • Organization of the Family Business Forum with Croatian Employers’ Association and business magazine Lider;
  • Development of the Centre for Family Business and Business Transfer;
  • Preparation of Mini Guide for SMEs on Business Transfer within EU project BizImpact.
