British Croatian Business Club
Redefining Investment in Business


We are an independent non-commercial business club funded by membership and sponsorship.

There are two key aims behind BCBC: one is to represent the interests of businesses in the United Kingdom and Croatia; and the second is to help businesses grow and connect, both nationally and internationally.

A Note From The Chairman

As we embark on the success of the British Croatian Business Club, I envisage a network of business people with a common goal to centralise, fortify and mobilise the business not only within Britain and Croatia, but globally. As a hub of international business support, we will provide a forum for discussion and negotiation to facilitate business growth for BCBC Members all over the world. With the ascension of Croatia into the EU, a wealth of opportunities will emerge, unprecedented in their potential. The BCBC will be here to support business that will flourish from this opportunity. We will be here to strengthen relations and build understanding between the business networks of Britain and Croatia across a broad scope of important factors including protocol and regulations.
