14th November, 2023

The latest information on business, innovation, and entrepreneurship, both in the country and the region, as well as worldwide, can be read from November 14th on five new digital editions of FORBES opened in the Adriatic region by United Media. The new licensed portals have been launched in Serbia, Croatia, Slovenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Montenegro.

With over 105 years of history, FORBES is a global leader in business and economic news, and now it is available in local languages. The digital editions of FORBES will cover a wide range of topics, including business news, market analysis, interviews with industry leaders, entrepreneurs, and experts. Readers will also be introduced to globally popular FORBES lists.

FORBES is a renowned media brand whose mission is to drive systemic changes in business, culture, and society through the stories of successful individuals, entrepreneurs, and innovators. It is a brand that inspires, educates, and encourages action.

“Forbes is excited to have our partner United Media launch Forbes editions in Serbia, Croatia, Slovenia, Montenegro and Bosnia & Herzegovina,” said Peter Hung, President, Licensing & Branded Ventures, Forbes. “Launching these new global editions in the Adriatic region demonstrates Forbes’ unwavering commitment to advocate and champion global entrepreneurship and furthers our presence throughout Europe.”

“We are extremely proud of this partnership with FORBES and are thrilled to launch these five licensed editions. In the business world, the availability of relevant, accurate information and analysis is crucial for making good business decisions. FORBES is a long-standing brand, synonymous with trustworthiness, value, and prestige, and a brand that inspires. That’s why we are pleased to present new websites to the audience in the region that will provide them with exclusive insights and information about local and global business opportunities,” emphasized Aleksandra Subotić, CEO of United Media.

The editor of Forbes Serbia is the experienced economic editor and journalist Ivan Radak: “In today’s world of fast and short information, I believe FORBES will be a real refreshment for those who want to take the time to read something very high-quality, interesting, and substantial after a hard day at work – something that will enrich them in every sense. FORBES will be a place for dialogue and added value for all business people in our region, especially for those who aspire to become one. I am confident that they will find a lot of useful advice and ideas in our content. If this happens and we contribute to having even more successful entrepreneurs, small and large, our mission is successful.”

The Montenegrin edition of FORBES is led by the experienced economic journalist Biljana Matijašević: “I believe that launching licensed FORBES digital editions is another ‘window to the world’ for the region, which will enable the presentation, above all, of the business potential in Montenegro. Our mission is to provide readers and business leaders with the most relevant and highest quality information in the business world and to give a voice to successful people and companies from our region.”

The editor of FORBES Croatia is a popular figure in the world of economic topics, Đurđica Klancir: “Croatia already has influential business media, but I am convinced that Forbes Croatia will bring many new things. We want to show good examples of entrepreneurial practice, present entrepreneurs who, despite all difficulties, manage to be innovative and brave, inform about events and trends in the Croatian economic scene, but also be a ‘link’ to the information and models presented by the global Forbes network. We will write uncompromisingly about solutions that shape the economy in Croatia, but also convey the opinions and proposals of competent domestic interlocutors who believe that there are other, better possible models. We would love to become regular reading for Croatian entrepreneurs and managers, both established and those just starting their careers, but not only for them – but also for opinion-makers and all those who understand that the development of all segments of society begins with economic development.”

The FORBES Slovenia team is led by Bojana Humar: “We will put people first. We will be interested in entrepreneurs who have succeeded but also those who have not succeeded because wrong decisions can also be instructive. We will look from a height even at ministers whose decisions affect the economy.”

Ika Ferrer Gotić, a journalist, producer, and well-known TV personality in Bosnia and Herzegovina, is in charge of the FORBES BiH website: “For more than a century, FORBES has been a respected voice for companies, investors, and entrepreneurs, providing essential insights into the global economy. With a commitment to quality journalism and expert analysis, the regional FORBES team will work to empower our readers with the knowledge they need to make informed decisions. Being part of the regional and global FORBES team is an honour! We will bring the most successful FORBES business stories from the country, region, and the world, and we will offer a unique analysis of market changes, introduce the most successful managers, philanthropists, and businessmen, as well as leaders of the business world. We are consistent in absolute journalistic integrity and our role in shaping the business narrative in the country and the region.”
