Summary/Abstract: This paper presents the development of start-up companies, their types and potential sources of financing with special emphasis on financing ventures in Croatia. The expected scientific contribution supports the defining stages of development for start-ups, as well as their financing sources at each stage. The goal of the research was to investigate whether Croatia has made a shift from traditional to newer methods of financing. Scientific and research contributions of the paper are reflected in the fact that there is a relatively small number of papers, especially in the domestic literature, that address these issues. Therefore, this research can contribute to a better understanding of the financing strategy of entrepreneurial ventures. Presented and interpreted results could be a useful basis and encouragement for a further research in this and similar topics related to the start-up scene at the local as well as the global level.
