Split Tech City


Are you a budding entrepreneur, a curious student, or a dreamer with a startup idea scribbled on a napkin? If the answer is a resounding yes to any of those, mark your calendars for the most exhilarating hackathon of the year!

From October 26th to 28th, the great cities of Zagreb and Split will be the epicenters of innovation, hosting a hackathon that intertwines Green Industry with Blue Growth.

Zagreb is calling for all GREEN ideas while Split summons all BLUE ideas, no matter what stage you are in.

The GREEN HACKATHON in Zagreb and the BLUE HACKATHON in Split will take place in person and simultaneously. Up to 10 teams per city will shift their ideas to new levels under the guidance and supervision of an experienced hackathon team from ALGEBRA.

This is not just a competition but a platform to turn your groundbreaking ideas into reality, a gathering of like-minded individuals, and a playground to foster innovation that could lead to sustainable industrial solutions and blue economy breakthroughs.

And it’s open to all dreamers!

As the organizers of this event, the CRO STARTUP team wants to welcome you to an ecosystem of creativity and practical solutions, where your ideas will take root and flourish.

Whether you’re a young entrepreneur, a passionate student, an aspiring startup founder, or just a curious soul, this hackathon is the stage for your ideas to evolve and thrive.

What does the CRO STARTUP team offer? A nurturing environment with mentors who have been there and done that, ample sustenance to keep those ideas flowing, and a community of inquisitive minds to interact and collaborate with.

All you need to bring is your laptop, a mind brimming with ideas, and the kind of energy that fuels innovation.

And let’s not forget the cherry on top!

The winning teams in both GREEN HACKATHON and BLUE HACKATHON not only take home a EUR 1,500 cash prize and an online business skills program but also bag a fully paid expedition to the picturesque landscapes of Norway.

An opportunity to broaden the personal and professional horizons, network with the Norwegian tech ecosystem, and perhaps, see the Northern Lights while you think about how the hackathon propelled you closer to your dream.

Here’s a sneak peek of what you can expect:

  • Mentorship from industry experts who have weathered the startup storms and come out shining.
  • An opportunity to network with a community that shares your passion for sustainable and impactful solutions.
  • Delicious, energy-fueling meals to keep you going as you hack your way to glory.
  • A chance to showcase your solution to an audience that matters, gaining visibility and invaluable feedback.
  • No coding is needed.

This is more than a hackathon – it is a voyage of discovery, a nurturing ground for your innovative ideas aimed at bolstering green industries and propelling blue growth.

So, are you ready to take the plunge and ride the wave of innovation? Remember, the future is green, the growth is blue, and this opportunity is golden!

If you’re in – you need to apply!

And do so until Monday, October 23rd. So, hurry up – you wouldn’t want to miss this for the world!
