Funderbeam and Zagreb Stock Exchange (ZSE) launched a joint venture on Friday to boost investing in growth companies in South-east Europe and trade their investments.

The goal is to have the first companies fundraising and trading this year on Funderbeam SEE. The target companies are ones who have already proven their product/service market fit.

“We are very excited about the opportunities Funderbeam offers to growing companies. As exchange that is missing new listings, we want to create an environment in which we can foster significant issuers on the regulated market,” said Ivana Gazic, President of Supervisory Board at Zagreb Stock Exchange.
