Shift Startup is not a new startup conference, it’s a rebranding of last year’s successful Startup Live Split conference, with Netokracija as a media sponsor. Organizers, led by Code Anwhere’s co-founder Ivan Burazin, want to gather 500 participants this year in Split!
Shift will be held in Split from 22nd to 24th May. Burazin revealed for Netokracija how they decided to make their own brand – Startup Live’s format is actually a hackathon, not a conference, so it did not (even though it was previously the biggest Startup Live event) fit into their branding any more. Therefore, IT company Profico and web development agency Locastic joined Burazin’s Procedo in organizing Shift Startup.
The aim of the conference is to encourage the development of local, Split startup community and to position Split as an IT location. Burazin promises that the participants can except the interesting lectures and have the opportunity to enjoy the rich entertainment program that includes a tour of Diocletian and organized night life.
