Entrepreneurs receive support through grants, supporting institutions and entrepreneurial infrastructure.

In 2008, the City of Rijeka adopted its General Programme of measures aimed at incentivising the development of entrepreneurship in the territory of the city of Rijeka, by systematising the existing activities of the City relating to entrepreneurial incentives, with the aim of achieving transparency and easier communication with entrepreneurs.

Due to the global crisis and its influence on the economy of Rijeka, with the passing of the years, the Programme followed the needs of entrepreneurs and has been supplemented on several occasions so far, so that at present it includes 22 measures that relate to direct support to entrepreneurs, by awarding grants and a possibility to use business premises owned by the City under favourable conditions, through business and start-up incubators.
