Introduction Description:

Our team designed and conducted a pre-incubation startup program lasting for 6 weeks for the Splitsko-dalmatinska županija through their project called ICT Županija. The project’s goal was to popularize technological entrepreneurship and educate young entrepreneurs from idea development to market entry. The program combined activities that took place both in-person and online. During 5 days of intensive in-person education, teams gained essential knowledge and concepts in business model development. Over the following 5 weeks, teams worked with trainers and mentors on the validation and development of business models, leading up to the final Demo Day and pitches.


The project resulted in the design and implementation of a pre-incubation program for early-stage startups, utilizing a hybrid approach with a combination of in-person and online activities. Throughout the program:

  • 15 teams went through education.
  • 14 teams validated their market problems and developed business models.
  • 8 teams tested their MVPs or prototypes with users.
  • 4 teams generated their first revenues.

This project provided support and encouragement to young entrepreneurs on their path to success.
