INNOVATE NOW CROATIA – Osijek Edition
The goal of this national event is to encourage innovation and select 2 ideas with the perspective of developing a successful business. It is truly national, for it will be held in parallel in 4 Croatian cities (Zagreb, Osijek, Rijeka, and Split), geographically distributed so that everyone interested has the possibility to attend, regardless of which part of Croatia they are from.
Innovate Now Croatia participants will talk about innovation, startups, technology, sustainability… and Split and Zagreb will also hold hackathons (Blue & Green, respectively) with pitch presentations and cool prizes (EUR 1.500 + online business skills program + one-week bootcamp in Norway) for the winning teams!
