Seeds of Change

A new concept for business development is born in the Balkans, one which goes beyond hubs, incubators and co-working, and which represents innovation in the business support sector. This Business Complex, CoSeed, has been developed by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs to create an ecosystem for established businesses and aspiring entrepreneurs. The facilities and services provided empower entrepreneurs to achieve their full potential using the experience, knowledge and networks of those who have been there and done it, and who are still doing it… whilst at the same time, holding out their hands to bring others up to the same level.

The 21st Century is the Era of ‘Co’: co-working, collaboration, community and collateral, maximizing human capital, and so the CoSeed Complex has been designed to represent this. The facilities have been created to be fun, fast and focussed in bringing together different sizes of companies, at different stages and in different sectors. Hence, the CoSeed offers maximum opportunities for all of them to not only develop within the CoSeed Complex, but within the region and internationally.

Growing the companies of the future, this centre of excellence will be unique in the Balkans as it is based on a commercial, and therefore sustainable, model from the private sector which cooperates with partners and stakeholders at all levels to bring maximum benefit to the tenants of the CoSeed Complex and to the business community outside.

As the entrepreneurs who created the concept are aware, business is not just about start-ups, indeed the most difficult times of business are the growth stages, attracting investment, conducting R&D and additionally succession planning, business transfer or company sale. Hence the CoSeed Complex has plans to have all the facilities from virtual offices through to manufacturing facilities. An innovation lab and on-site business support centre will be available for all enterprises in the Balkans. Furthermore, the CoSeed Complex contains a few special services: a Phoenix Office - to support those experienced entrepreneurs rising from the ashes; a Job-Ready Community – preparing people for jobs and locating opportunities to create employment; an Investment Portal – a collection of investors looking for prospects; and a Holistic Zone – a health and relaxation area

The CoSeed Complex has been realised through an established partnership between Seavus and the MADI Group. This facility will be Macedonia's and the Balkans Centre of Excellence for business development. This Business Complex is designed to stimulate employment, creativity, innovation and sustainable growth in the Balkans region and by fulfilling this mission, the CoSeed Complex will create a generational change to provide an environment conducive to promoting the entrepreneurial spirit. CoSeed recognises the entrepreneur as the ‘agent’ of change - the person who can creates value from an innovative idea in a world of change and uncertainty.
