About us

Our team

Companies with no prior experience in the development business should understand its specifics and benefits. To carry out projects funded by development institutions excellently, the support is usually needed especially in these areas:

  • Clarifying information about the development business
  • Identifying specific niche in the development market
  • Finding relevant opportunities and partners
  • Helping to choose finances to participate in tenders
  • Preparing competitive bids
  • Advising on contractual / financing issues
  • Project management support

The platform facilitates the engagement of business sector with development institutions (IFI - international financial institutions and IGO - intergovernmental organizations such as the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development or the World Bank Group). The scheme aims to lower barriers of entry into the development marketplace by helping firms navigate through complex procurement systems, tendering and project management processes.

The services of Rozvojmajstri are branded under four meisters that are specialized in various project phases and activities.

The Rozvojmajstri programme is implemented by consultancy company Aspiro, a.s. with kind support of UNDP and Ministry of Finance of the Slovak Republic. The Rozvojmajstri platform is a proud member of PSLO network (Private Sector Liaison Officer), which is a network of over 160 business intermediary organizations across the world, designed to facilitate World Bank Group communications with the private sector.

Business community referrals

We have become acquainted with RM activities in 2015. Since then, we have participated in various events organized by RM, business missions, seminars, coaching sessions and we also received support with preparation of bid documents and finding project partners.

We really appreciate the practical approach RM applies. This is largely aimed at getting information from the source of IFIs that are potentially interesting for our consulting business. Through these contacts, we have been successfully involved in several assignments at the EBRD – these initial references helped us to expand our development business and to win additional consulting projects related to property & tourism sector in Mongolia and Kazakhstan.

RM is able to facilitate contacts and relevant information which otherwise is complicated to retrieve. This is thanks to the expertise of the RM staff as they have a proven track record in working with the IFIs. Due to the pleasant cooperation with RM we’ve had the opportunity to work on very interesting consulting projects in Central/Eastern Europe and Central Asia
