We know it’s actually Autumn, but we also know that – in true Mediterranean Tech Hub style – we’re still chilling on the beach and swimming in the sea here in Split. However, we have reached the time when we take a peek back at the last three months and see all that has happened during July, August, and September.

And yes, the 2023 edition of the Split Tech City Festival has played a central role in this show. However, you’d be surprised at the variety of some of the “side shows” that made these past three months even more fabulous.

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


This month was marked by the arrival of Data Domain, Hrvatski Telekom, LAMA, Re.Split, and Tražim.hr to the Split Tech City community. And you know we’re always the happiest when we welcome new members!

July was also the month with a lot of focus on youth and entrepreneurship. We talked about the ways the local community encourages entrepreneurship, and shared the news of the conclusion of STup! university startup competition, the fabulous results of the FESB Racing team, the interview we did with the young SmartNest team, the initiation of Blank’s Web3 Development Fund, and one of several stories of international students in Split.

Digital nomads’ outlook on Split, as well as an overview of Split Startups Meetup videos to watch, were our chosen “beach topics”.

We knew you’re already enjoying summer on the beach and we thought some accompanying inspiration couldn’t hurt! 😉

Our volunteer authors Ivana, Tamara, and Ana were also busy bringing you a variety of different reading material: from the 2nd NoMAD MOVIE ART, over Digital Identity, to the procrastination-and-perfectionism cycle respectively.


In members’ news of August, we celebrated two things: welcoming ELEKS to the Split Tech City community and the 10th birthday of dobartek.hr!

This was also the month when the final preparations for the Split Tech City Festival were in full swing. You got to know more about our Festival MC Michael, as well as the speakers Aleks and Andreas. We also introduced the Festival panel discussion and the first part of the Split Startups Meetup pre-program.

You also had the opportunity to prepare for this year’s edition of the Festival by glancing back at the #STCFestival2022!

But our Festival wasn’t the only topic we focused on in August. We also shared Grgur’s work-and-life story, news about a great coworking collaboration, the ins and outs of Blank’s The Lokals, as well as a great announcement of the newest arrival to Split’s events scene – Motion Plus Design.

Our volunteers also brought you interesting things to read about. On the English writing team side, we had Ivana who shared an overview of AI tools for designers, Tamara who focused her attention on covering Generative AI and Company Data, and Ivan who did his best to help you unlock your potential with ChatGPT.

They were joined by Paula from the Croatian writing team whose article about Culture Hub Croatia we translated so you don’t miss out on getting to know more about this great initiative.


The beginning of this month was reserved for many and all Festival things. We introduced you to the final sections of the program – the lecture by Ivan Burazin – as well as the Split Startups Meetup pre-program fireside chat.

And, for all of those unfortunate enough to miss out on all the fabulousness of the third edition of our Festival, we brought you the Festival program and pre-program overviews, as well as the Split Startups Meetup and the #STCFestival videos.

We hope they managed to bring to you at least a bit of that fantastic Festival atmosphere! 😀

September was also the month with a lot of focus on design: Ivana was in charge of announcing DVK’s INTERACTIONS 2023, while we introduced you to the artists of Motion Plus Design Split and shared the impressions from the event itself, as well as highlighted the Homo Aquaticus: HABITAT ST21 exhibition.

Other news and stories this month focused on another international student experience, the upcoming Virtual Tech Job Fair, catching up with Jedna Mladost, as well as Tamara’s overview of the top 10 climate tech trends to expect in 2024.

The Split Tech City community members also contributed to the vivaciousness of this month!

EPAM organized their first IT Night in Split, we announced another edition of the SCALEUP ACADEMY and caught up with Tilde Loop, while the Infobip Developer Relations Team shared the news of their great achievements at DevRel Awards 2023.

Lively Split Tech City community builds on!

That’s a brief glance back at the past three months while we’re already focusing on the community-building activities and stories of the upcoming period.

Make sure you continue keeping an eye on our website for all the updates because – as it has become obvious – our Mediterranean Tech Hub is anything but boring and uneventful!

Onwards and up! 😀
