As you already know, this year our Festival of Technology and Entrepreneurship is an international event because we have added a full day of English content that will take place on September 9th.

Up until now, we have only hinted at what you can expect during the International Day of the #STCFestival2022, so the time has come to start introducing our speakers and panelists.

We did our best to include a little bit of everything for everyone in the content of our Festival while still making sure that, aside from fantastic networking, you will also gain something from each lecture and panel.

Therefore, without further ado, meet our first speaker!

Omer Chehmer lives in Israel and shared with us the fact he loves to travel. He is also a passionate entrepreneur and product manager with experience developing and leading B2C and B2B products from concept through development to marketing.

Omer is also the co-founder of Bookaway Group, a platform that sells bus, ferry, and train tickets. For those who are unfamiliar with them, it’s interesting to note that they own 4 global brands: GetByBus, Bookaway, 12go, and Plataforma10.

At our Festival of Technology and Entrepreneurship in September, Omer will give a lecture titled Data-driven culture as a key success factor.

His talk will give you some insight into:

  • how Bookaway started and how they were able to raise 81M USD during a time when all travel-related business was halted
  • Bookaway’s market roll-up strategy and why they acquired GetByBus
  • why and how they developed their own BI system in-house
  • how they implemented a data-driven culture and how it helped them
  • and much more!

You will also get the chance to ask your own questions during the Q&A session after Omer’s talk, as well as network with him at the Festival.

So, don’t miss out on this fantastic opportunity and get your #STCFestival tickets!

Researching is woven into my DNA, but I am a musician at heart. Interested in too many things and always curious. Forever in love with Split and enchanted by people who teach me new things. When I am not creating content about Split's tech community, you will find me in singing rehearsals, somewhere in nature, in the theater, or with my head stuck in a book. I do my best to live by the verse from the opera "Fedora" by Umberto Giordano: "Love forbids you not to love."
