The Green Future Conference will be held in Split on June 9th and 10th. More than 30 Croatian and international speakers will cover the topic of green transition in the context of business, technology, finance, energy, environmental protection, public policies, e-mobility, and many other industries.
The conference is supported by the two largest Croatian technology companies, Rimac Group and Infobip, and sponsored by OTP Bank, A1, and Bosch (gold sponsors) as well as Daikin, Ernst & Young, Končar, Schneider Electric, and Professio Energia.
In addition to numerous talks and panels, on June 8th – the zero-day of the conference – there will be a Challenge Day for 20 shortlisted startups.
Startups shortlisted by an expert panel will have a unique opportunity to pitch their ideas and receive advice from mentors to further improve them before finally pitching the ideas officially on the Green Future Conference stage on June 9th and 10th. Just as importantly, the startups will be given the opportunity to participate in exclusive workshops organized by Infobip, Business Psychology Lab, and the Department of Science and Innovation of the University of Split.
The startup voted best by the expert panel will receive a prize of USD 10,000. There is another prize pool of USD 50,000 – Green Communication Awards – to be awarded in Infobip services, namely USD 25,000 for 1st place, USD 15,000 for 2nd place, and USD 10,000 for 3rd place.
The startups can apply by May 5th. The startups that make the shortlist will be notified by May 15th.
“Croatia already hosts one of the leading developer conferences in Southeast Europe – Infobip Shift. I’m glad that the country has established another well-designed platform for exchanging ideas – a place where young developers and all those who are already developing ideas for green and digital solutions get the opportunity to learn, advance, and network early on in their careers.
I invite all emerging companies, as well as individuals, to apply for the Startup Challenge showcase their competencies, and win valuable prizes,” said Ivan Burazin, a member of the Infobip Board, founder of Shift Conference, and member of the Startup Challenge panel.
Startup Challenge of the Green Future Conference is also supported by GBC HUB, a partner of Infobip Startup Tribe and an association of over 20 green startups run by Marko Brkljačić, who will be on the Startup Challenge panel.
“The Green Future Conference is an amazing event, and the Startup Challenge is a great opportunity to pitch and hone good ideas. We are pleased to see Infobip support and take part in it because its Startup Tribe gathers green startups that I believe will not miss the opportunity to apply for the Startup Challenge of the Green Future Conference,” said Nikola Pavešić, manager of Infobip’s Startup Tribe department.
