“Croatia already hosts one of the leading developer conferences in Southeast Europe – Infobip Shift. I’m glad that the country has established another well-designed platform for exchanging ideas – a place where young developers and all those who are already developing ideas for green and digital solutions get the opportunity to learn, advance, and network early on in their careers.  I invite all emerging companies, as well as individuals, to apply for the Startup Challenge showcase their competencies, and win valuable prizes,” said Ivan Burazin, member of the Infobip Board, founder of Shift Conference, and member of the Startup Challenge panel.


Startup Challenge of the Green Future Conference is also supported by GBC HUB, a partner of Infobip Startup Tribe and an association of over 20 green startups run by Marko Brkljačić, who will be on the Startup Challenge panel. 

“The Green Future Conference is an amazing event, and the Startup Challenge is a great opportunity to pitch and hone good ideas. We are pleased to see Infobip support and take part in it because its Startup Tribe gathers green startups that I believe will not miss the opportunity to apply for the Startup Challenge of the Green Future Conference,” said Nikola Pavešić, manager of Infobip’s Startup Tribe department.

The latest information relating to the Green Future Conference and Startup Challenge will be published on the official website of the Conference.
