A startup conference that aims to help young entrepreneurs develop their business ideas, advance Zagreb’s entrepreneurial ecosystem and create more favorable conditions for startups based in Zagreb and beyond.
Zagreb Connect’s main focus will be on pre-seed and early stage investing, experiences of Croatian startups which have been successful in raising funding, and ways in which small startups can leap into global markets.
This year, the City of Zagreb is bringing together Zagreb Connect and Startup Factory program.
Startup Factory is Zagreb Innovation Centre’s “no equity” pre-acceleration program which provides intensive education, top mentors, infrastructural and promotional support, and networking.
Startup Factory Demo Day will take place at Zagreb Connect – 18 teams that have entered the pre-acceleration program following the Startup Factory Bootcamp will pitch for a total of 800.000 HRK (over 106.000 EUR).
Each of the five winning teams will receive 160.000 HRK (over 21.000 EUR) and Zagreb Connect’s best pitch will receive an additional 60.000 HRK (8.000 EUR).
