Time sure flies and here we are in May already! And May being as eventful as ever in Split, we thought we should add to it and make it a fine time for the second edition of the Split Startups Meetup. When and where, you ask?

Next Thursday, May 11th, at The Works Coworking – starting from 18:00. So, sign up and grab your spot!

Those who attended the first edition of this meetup back in February already know what to expect. For the newcomers, the format goes more or less like this: we get a variety of different perspectives on a specific topic during the panel discussion, which is followed by an interesting lecture that offers more insight into a specific part of the startup world.

We got a crowd going at the first Split Startups Meetup. Will you join us this time? 🙂

After that, we’ll wrap the evening up with networking that allows you to meet like-minded people, as well as ask the panelists and speakers a few more questions. Sounds interesting? Or are you on the fence about attending? Well – you shouldn’t be!

Split Startups Meetup is open to anyone – those already in the startup world, as well as those who are merely curious about it. 🙂

Now that we’ve covered the basics, let’s see what the second edition will bring us!

The panel discussion

Last time we decided to make geography the focus of our panel discussion, so this time we’re putting the spotlight on people. Ever wondered what the employees had to say about working in a startup?

What about the difference between the experiences of employees who have been with a startup from its beginnings – one being a new startup, and one being an already established and even acquired startup? What about founders – as they are essentially the first employees?

We were curious about human experiences in startups, hence the panel discussion titled “Humans of Startups“!

Our Split Startups Meetup panelists are Ivan Veštić (GetByBus), Iva Kegalj (Litto Agency), and Josip Volarević (dReader).

Michael is as adept at questioning the Startups Meetup audience as he is at grilling the panelists with questions. 😉

They will once again face the questions by one and only Michael Freer, but also your own questions that you can ask via the registration form. So – ask away! But please don’t be too harsh. 🙂

The lecture

Humans are governed by laws, so it was kind of a no-brainer to follow this type of panel discussion with a lecture on the legal aspects of starting a startup. That was also one of the wishes you communicated while signing up for the first edition of Split Startups Meetup.

After all – what is a community meetup without listening to the feedback from the said community? So, we decided to bring in a lawyer into the mix. And not just any lawyer!

His name is Frano Barović and his lecture is titled “Legal aspects of opening, running, and investing in startups”.

The first edition brought an interesting lecture, and we’re sure this one will, too!

Frano started his legal career immediately after graduating from the Faculty of Law of the University of Zagreb in 2013, and in 2017 he opened his own law office based in Zagreb.

From the early days of his legal career, he has worked with international clients, providing legal assistance in commercial and corporate matters while simultaneously developing competencies in dispute resolution and labor law.

Since September 2019, he has been a Nlaw partner for Croatia.

He worked on many different cases from the startup sector, covering topics such as the establishment and development of startups, as well as investments in startups on the part of both, investors and founders.

Under his leadership, Nlaw Croatia was recognized very early on as a reliable legal advisor for venture capital investments. They also advise on takeovers and mergers, as well as other financial and business transactions.

To sum it up: Frano knows the law, he knows startups, and by the meetup next week he’ll also know (and answer) any questions you want to ask him. So, it’s time to fill out that registration form!

Did we forget anything?

We don’t think so! But we might surprise you with some additional things on the spot next Thursday. After all – we’re in the startup world and need to be adaptable and think quickly on our feet!

For those who think we forgot the networking… of course – we didn’t!

All smiles during the Split Startups Meetup networking! 😀

We’re sure the networking will be the highlight, as always. After all, you’ll have lots to discuss after you hear all that you’re going to hear during the official program of the second Split Startups Meetup.

We hope you’re ready – to learn something new, garner some new perspectives, and have a blast like last time!

Don’t miss out and sign up – we’re waiting for you at the Split Startups Meetup! 😀
