After another successful STup! competition held last year, the Student Business Incubator at the Faculty of Economics in Split is getting ready for the fourth edition of this international university startup competition with the support of the City of Split, the University Green Digital HUB, and the Alliance of the European University of the Seas (SEA-EU).

As in all of its previous editions, the STup!2023 university startup competition is designed to encourage young entrepreneurs, startups, and researchers who will have the opportunity to share their passion for entrepreneurship and present themselves to investors of international character, incubator leaders, and accelerators with programs for proactive students.

Furthermore, this competition aims to enable all competitors and visitors to connect with each other, encourages the development of an entrepreneurial mindset and culture among students, and allows the exchange of experiences at the international level.

The main goal of STup! is to support university-level and scientific-research startups and allow young entrepreneurs to present their work on the international startup scene.

In this way, the Student Business Incubator promotes the city of Split as a city of young people who have the opportunities and support to realize their entrepreneurial ideas. For them, Split is a community characterized by creativity, ambition, and courage, where young people just need to be given an opportunity to show what they’re capable of doing.

This is precisely what the STup!2023 competition offers – it sets the stage for young people to present their innovative ideas which will then attract the attention of renowned experts and potential clients.

The application process for STup!2023 is open until June 10th.

Applications for all university startups who wish to attend are submitted in online form through the official STup! website. To clarify, university startups are early-phase startups affiliated with a university through an incubator, an accelerator, or by at least one team member still in student status.

Participants have to submit their startup presentations along with the application. University startups selected to participate will be notified via email with further instructions from the organizers.

Considering how amazing STup! competition is year after year, not being a part of it would be such a shame! So – apply now – and get ready to be launched high among the stars! 😀

Researching is woven into my DNA, but I am a musician at heart. Interested in too many things and always curious. Forever in love with Split and enchanted by people who teach me new things. When I am not creating content about Split's tech community, you will find me in singing rehearsals, somewhere in nature, in the theater, or with my head stuck in a book. I do my best to live by the verse from the opera "Fedora" by Umberto Giordano: "Love forbids you not to love."
