Restart – Social Biz

Working for Prosperous Bosnia and Herzegovina

Restart operates as a business embassy for the diaspora. We handle business requests and facilitate investments coming from the diaspora network and their contacts around the world.

Restart aims to serve entrepreneurs, business-oriented individuals, and municipalities in Bosnia and Herzegovina needing better international networks, a better information base, as well as consulting regarding direct and indirect investments. Restart reaches out also to all other members of the Bosnian diaspora who desire to directly take part in the economic and social transformation of their homeland.

For these companies or individuals who have a hard time navigating through the legal framework and complex administrative processes, offers a solution on a “turnkey” basis.

Let’s unite and work together towards this goal! These are few ways to interact.


Bosnia and Herzegovina struggles to attract foreign investments and is behind neighboring countries when it comes to FDI values. It’s great to attract large investments, at the same time we believe that the it’s more realistic to attract investments to the dynamic SME sector. We invite you to get in touch with us if you are looking for interesting projects to invest in. Restart team maintains a list of Bosnian up and coming companies who are willing to expand their ownership structure.

Access to Contacts

Another way to engage is to introduce the opportunities in your home country to your contacts where you live. You are an Ambassador and trusted advisor for your network. Most of the investment engagements in Bosnia and Herzegovina have come either through diaspora members or their friends and partners. There are very few investors that have decided to invest in our country by coming on their own.

Knowledge and Creativity

Exchange of knowledge sparks creativity. Bosnian diaspora professionals around the world have accumulated knowledge within different industries and we consider that the best way to support the growth of your home country is through knowledge sharing with fellow professionals in Bosnia and Herzegovina. This will lead to a creativity boost that is very much needed for a better future of its citizens.
