We started the year by taking a glance back at 2022. But that definitely didn’t mean we weren’t getting ready to launch ourselves (and Split’s tech community) into all the wonders of 2023 that we had planned!
So, how about we see what was happening during the first part of this year, shall we?! 😀
At the beginning of this year, MARTECHiNG and AISMA announced their partnership. Any news of this kind makes us very happy because it is always nice to witness collaborations taking place.
We also shared some opinions internationals have on Split and its tech community. 🙂
This was the month we decided to help remote workers out with some info, so we strolled around Split in search of a perfect coffee shop to work from and the coworking that best fits our needs (and those of Split’s digital nomads).
It might seem like a quiet month, but – we were just getting started! 😉
February started with some lovely and some mind-blowing things. Lovely in terms of the Split Tech Cup wrap-up – we donated the laptops bought from the Split Tech Cup fund to the MoSt association.
And mindblowing in terms of the announcement of the partnership Split Tech City entered with Silicon Gardens – a partnership that will certainly enrich the local startup ecosystem!
And as for events – it was also the month when the first Startups Meetup was held, proving how much we needed an event like this in our startup and tech ecosystem.
And since we’re already on the topic of startups, Silicon Castles announced the Split edition of their Design Thinking workshops – Diamond Labs. And the team from the Student Business Incubator started promoting the upcoming Hack4Split!
February startup buzz, people! 😀
To shift your attention from startups, we shared a remarkable story about a spectacular international collaboration between Piero, who came to Split on a digital nomad visa, and the youth from Jedna Mladost.
When it comes to the Split Tech City community, we caught up with Bitcoin Store and shared great news from NAIS about their contract with Eindhoven Airport. We also welcomed Silicon Castles, Fiorin Consulting, and KING ICT.
March was the time for the comeback of Women In Tech, and what a powerful comeback it was! 😀
Since we’re already talking about events and education, a lot of attention during March was given to NEXT and its promotion: from announcing all speakers and panelists to the final program announcement.
In other news, Green Future Conference announced its Startup Challenge, the official first announcement for this year’s Hack4Split landed online, while our columnist Ivan continued teaching us all about NFTs.
The March news from the Split Tech City community focused on the yearly assembly of our Association, and another fantastic partnership: Evolutio and Infobip are now coding things together!
We do measure our success in happy faces at the meetups, new connections and partnerships, as well as the growth of the Split Tech City community.
However, we do admit it’s good to take a look at the hardcore numbers, too. So, here’s what they look like for the first three months of 2023 compared to the same period last year:
the number of visitors to our website grew 12%, while the number of views grew 22% and the amount of time spent on the Split Tech City website increased by 14,5%.
We can say we did okay. 😉
At the end of this period, we also reflected on Split’s potential to become a Mediterranean Tech Hub.
When we look at all the liveliness Split’s tech community lived through during these first three months of 2023, we think Split already is a Mediterranean Tech Hub!
What about you?! 😀
