Zivkovic Samardzic has announced that it has supported South Central Ventures (SCV) with a EUR 700,000 investment in City Expert, a Belgrade-based startup that, according to the firm, “has gained traction rapidly with its innovations and use of technologies in real estate sale and rental sector."

SCV manages the Enterprise Innovation Fund (ENIF), a venture capital fund focusing on highly specialised, innovative, small and medium-sized enterprises in the Western Balkans. Investors in the ENIF include the European Commission, the European Investment Fund, the EBRD, Kreditanstalt fur Wiederaufbau, together with institutional and private investors from the Western Balkans. The EUR 40 million fund is dedicated primarily to early stage and growth investments and is intended to fuel international business expansion and growth.
