Prostoria was invited to participate in the programme due to its business results, its sustainable growth potential and leadership. Over a five-year period, it will receive support in the area of consulting and potential financing. The EBRD's Blue Ribbon programme selects market leaders in the countries in which it operates and supports their development ambitions by providing them with tailored-made advice and access to financial products.
Prostoria is the third company in Croatia invited to join the Blue Ribbon programme, which has so far included only 70 companies from all countries where the EBRD operates.
Known for its meticulous craftsmanship, innovation and high quality, the export-oriented and internationally awarded Prostoria has already been recognized by the Bank. Under the EBRD's business consulting programme for small and medium-sized enterprises and the support of the European Union and the European Investment Advisory Hub (EIAH), it successfully implemented a consulting project and developed its business strategy and organizational culture.
“We are very pleased that Prostoria joined the Blue Ribbon programme for small and medium-sized enterprises with a strong growth potential. We have recognized Prostoria for its management and commitment to high-quality standards and innovation. We look forward to supporting the next phase of its growth as the company takes on new challenges”, said Victoria Zinchuk, EBRD Director for Croatia.
“We are happy that the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development has recognized Prostoria as one of the first companies in Croatia to be accepted into the Blue Ribbon programme. Proven excellence as a prerequisite for participation is our regular model of action to which we owe our development so far. We will use the support of the Blue Ribbon programme over the next two years to achieve our strategic goals – empowerment in the field of branding, human resource and production efficiency development. Prostoria is continuously working to increase its competitiveness and business development, so we are grateful to be recognized as partners in the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development", pointed out Mirjana Vidaković Orečić, CEO of Prostoria.
