Split Tech City: the Festival mood of the third quarter!

It’s time to peek back at the last three months and see all that has happened during July, August, and September. And yes, our Festival of Technology and Entrepreneurship has taken the central role in this particular show. However, you’d be surprised at the variety of some of the “side characters”. 😉

So, without further ado, let’s check out the highlights of the third quarter of 2022!

The eBook and the newsletter

Both the Ecosystem Overview eBook and the English version of the Split Tech City newsletter were on our to-do list this year and we’re very happy they saw the light of day!

The Ecosystem Overview in particular was a long-term project. We did our best to briefly showcase all the richness of Split’s tech ecosystem. And, considering our tech community keeps growing day by day, the eBook will be updated regularly.

Therefore, keep an eye out for its update, and while you’re waiting – download the existing version!

As for the newsletter – whether you’re local or international, our English newsletter will bring a dose of positivity, tech, and Split to your inbox every month. Make sure you subscribe to it so that the owls we borrow from Hogwarts know how to find you. 😉

Startups, entrepreneurs, virtual assistants, and other curiosities

From #SplitFounder Ante and #VirtualAssistant Sanja to startups MetaBelly and Katriga. From announcing some summer opportunities for startups to sharing where we like to cool down and do some work.

Throw in an edition of Humans of Split Tech City by interviewing Ines. 🙂

Add a new series called #CatchingUp and share what scaleup Office has been up to. Introduce the Digital Volunteer Community project with the overview from volunteer management training and an introduction to a new app DonatQR is creating as part of the project.

And you have yourself an interesting pot of news and stories! 😀

The Split Tech City Podcast

Aside from various news on different topics, during these three months, we also brought two more podcast episodes to you. Konstantin and Matthew were two internationals whose stories we shared. Not only did we witness those two interesting stories, but a podcast milestone also happened during this period.

We reached a round number of 10 episodes!

Ten stories, each unique in its own way, but with one thing in common – choosing to call Croatia and Split their home. And we think that’s worth celebrating! 🙂


Locals’n’Nomads” certainly had its own share of parties during the summer! First, we celebrated the lucky 13th meetup in July, then we waited until the end of August so we could start the Festival mood a few days early, and finally, September was when we toasted to the arrival of autumn.

All the while continuously connecting Split’s digital nomads with the locals and having a good time while we do it. 🙂

Now, get ready for the last three “Locals’n’Nomads” meetups in 2022 – interesting things are brewing!

A few monthly columns

During this summer we also had some novelties in the form of specialized interviews and article series. The two stars of this show were Andrei Zinkevich and Ivan Markov.

Andrei shared with us a digital marketer’s point of view on Split’s tech community, as well as some of his invaluable marketing know-how. Meanwhile, Ivan was the one who guided you through NFT basics and blockchain basics.

We hope to see more different Split Tech City authors in the future. Are you one of them?

Festival of Technology and Entrepreneurship

And the cherry on top of this quartal: Festival of Technology and Entrepreneurship. 😀

It was a running theme during the summer, and rightfully so!

During July and August you got an introduction to our lecturers Daniel, Omer, Prashant, and Suren – and to our panelists, as well. Then we announced the full schedule and threw in some additional reasons why you should attend.

Finally – you did just that! 😀

Attended the #STCFestival, had a good time and showed us your support. We’ll be forever grateful!

Summing all this up with some numbers

Now, it’s time to bring out the calculators and spreadsheets! During these three months, the average monthly number of visitors settled at 2250, and the average number of page views was at 6030.

Throughout this same period in 2021, the numbers looked like this: the average monthly number of visitors was 1175, while the average number of page views was 3450. We dare to say we’re doing well with the whole task of bringing more visibility to Split’s tech community! 😉

But, let’s check the most important metric, shall we?

During these three months, our community was enriched with these new members: Harfa International School, Varyence, Postindustria Group – SigmoidLab, Smartspace, FIVE – an Endava Company, and Tilde Loop.

And that was our quarter number three, folks! Care to share yours? 😀
