In 2015, the City Municipality of Kranj joined the initiative of young entrepreneurs and started a project to establish a coworking space in the premises of the old trade school. The Regional Development Agency of Gorenjska, a business support center in Kranj, soon joined the project, bringing with it entrepreneurial experience and financial resources from the EU’s cohesion program.

Today, Kovačnica is not just a coworking space, as a community they offer (young) entrepreneurs from the wider region everything they need to enter the world of entrepreneurship quickly, efficiently, and affordably. Young entrepreneurs can rent a coworking space, get help from top business mentors, register their own company at their address or visit various educational workshops. Because they are proactive in obtaining EU funds, most of their programs and activities are free of charge, and everyone is welcome to attend. They currently offer 33 coworking places, 4 smaller offices, classrooms and premises for business consulting and business registration.
