Ten most promising start-ups in 2021

With one of the leading start-up events in Europe (PODIM), accelerators like the award-winning ABC, and many other support elements, Slovenia is becoming a true start-up hub with exciting new companies appearing every year. We present 10 of the most promising new companies in Slovenia as selected by the web portal EU-Startups.

Almost all the selected companies offer either financial solutions or operate with blockchain technology – or combine both. Eligma is developing the GoCrypto system for accepting instant payments with cryptocurrencies. The system is used in over 60,000 locations in 64 countries. Eligma attracted 4 million euros of capital in January. Hiveterminal is a blockchain based invoice financing platform used by over 4,000 SMEs. Tolar hashNET is the next generation community-governed cryptocurrency allowing superfast transactions. Geton Ecosystem is a cryptocurrency based global crowdfunding platform. Blocksquare is a blockchain solution aimed at real estate markets. Oxcert is an open-source platform for validating digital assets on the blockchain. CargoX has developed an award winning blockchain-based document transfer platform: it combines the concepts of e-mail, banking transaction and simple document functionalities. Another payment system with simple solutions for SMEs is Paywiser developed by Intech. Iconomi is one of the most user-friendly platforms to trade with cryptocurrencies. And finally, one company which offers neither financial solutions nor develops blockchain technologies: Agilicity is “a parametric urban design software”. In the world of blockchain tech it sounds almost like a brick-and-mortar company.
