The Trokut Digital Nomads office officially opened back in May 2021, following the announcement of digital nomad visas in Croatia as of January 1, 2021, allowing a temporary stay in Croatia for up to one year. Digital nomads can also apply for a second, subsequent digital nomad visa, but only 6 months after the first visa expires.
“We follow the story that is developing at Trokut with joy and optimism. We are glad that Trokut has already become recognized as a place that brings together young entrepreneurs from Croatia and the world. Entrepreneurs of the new generation who lead us into the future can find their opportunity here. We believe that all digital nomads who visit Šibenik once will fall in love with this city and all the advantages it provides,” said Šibenik Mayor Željko Burić back in May.
Digital nomads do not have fixed working hours or jobs because they work as needed depending on what is currently on their plate. Some nomads work more than 12 hours a day, but their place of work often changes. In addition, the coronavirus pandemic has increased the number of remote workers, making the term “digital nomads” more popular than ever before.
“Based on thinking about digital nomads who most often like to work in coworking spaces, we developed the concept of the Trokut Center, which is adapted to them because they fill a large part of that space. We have predicted well, evidenced by the need for new office desks in the first year of operation. I believe that the occupancy of digital nomads at Trokut will be more than satisfactory,” added Petar Mišura.
And this summer confirmed just that.
Namely, this summer, Trokut was visited by over 40 digital nomads, mostly foreigners, while their average stay in Trokut and in Šibenik was 18 days. While some were passing through, others chose Šibenik as their destination for longer holidays. Digital nomads have highlighted the beauties of Šibenik-Knin County, beaches, fortresses, and Krka National Park, in combination with Trokut, as a perfect combination for business.
Children’s STEM camps have also been completed. Trokut reported that they are very proud of “their Trokutići” because, under the watchful eye of teacher Ivan, they programmed everything themselves, designed it in 3D, and held a robotics competition. They would also like to thank the US Embassy in Zagreb for providing them with the necessary equipment to hold these workshops and go through all the important elements of STEM. Ivan Šoda confirms and adds:
“The children have mastered a diverse program, and I am sure that this camp has aroused their curiosity in the field of IT.”
More great news from a successful season is that Trokut won first in the “Investing in Entrepreneurial Skills” category at the European Enterprise Promotion Awards 2021. The award was won for holding Incubator 2021, the first of its kind in the Šibenik-Knin County area, whose target group was small and medium-sized enterprises focused on being successful and competitive in the domestic and foreign markets.
“Winning this award is a confirmation of our work and a confirmation of the long-term strategy of the City of Šibenik. We are glad to see that entrepreneurs primarily accepted us and have really become a recognized Center for Entrepreneurship, Innovation, and Education. This award is an additional motivation to continue our work and contribute as much as possible to the entrepreneurial community,” concluded director Diana Mudrinić.
