Transparent Slovakia Fund

The Fund for a Transparent Slovakia was established on the initiative of seven member companies in 2012. Its main objective is to improve transparency and promote a healthy business environment by supporting watchdog and analytical organizations which control the activities of public institutions and public financial management.

After our feedback, several other projects were changed to better demonstrate their merits. The fund support was key in this aspect. It has helped us build a methodology, a systematic evaluation process and maintain the interest of the IT community and the wider public in investing hundreds of millions of euros.

Currently, the fund has 17 members. During this period, we were able to raise and regrant almost 850 000 EUR, that were used to support NGOs with significant influence in this area. The work of these NGOs helped save hundreds of millions of EUR in public procurements and many representatives of these NGOs transferred to work for the government and have significant influence on how Slovakia works with European Funds and other public resources.

The Fund’s Vision

  • Slovakia as a legal state: a predictable and a fair place for a business and life

 

The Fund’s Objectives

  • The promotion of systemic change that will help to eliminate corruption and “the kidnapping of the state” (courts, prosecution, police, inspection bodies…)
  • Public scrutiny and pressure on all participants to comply with the laws and ethical standards

The Fund’s Strategy

  • Financial and non-financial support of organizations and initiatives which help to fulfil the above mentioned goals
  • Networking of participants, creating synergies and a critical mass of operators who refuse corruption

In Websupport, we want to contribute to the systematic improvement of the business environment in Slovakia. Organisations supported by the fund do an incredibly good job of uncovering and pointing out the problems we have here today. By doing that, they help our society advance. Transparency should be part of every mature, democratic society and we want to help co-create it here in Slovakia.
