Startup Factory 2020 Teams
Startup Factory propelled us toward receiving our first major investment which made further development and internationalization possible.
The programme is absolutely worth the effort. It teaches you how to run your (future) business and gets you in shape for Zagreb Connect. 160.000,00 HRK that we received helped us complete the job for our first client, optimize our solution and perform further testing.
The intensity of the program helped me focus. I was committed to creating HUBBIG and it paid off.
Startup Factory is designed to help entrepreneurs who are entering the startup world. This is where we’ve received every possible kind of support, including finances, mentoring and friendship. The program exceeded all my expectations - I give it a 10!
Startup Factory is a great initiative that allows young teams and companies to develop their products and place them on the market. Participating in the program catalyzed our development. Our journey would have been far more difficult had it not been for the support of ZICER's mentors and the financial support of the City of Zagreb.
Startup Factory and the amazing ZICER team helped us accelerate the development of Hero Factory, meet a bunch of new collaborators, and make a critical step forward. What a fantastic experience!
