Conference Goals

The main goal of the conference is to show participants some real examples of how dynamic, innovative and entrepreneurial organizational culture can be developed inside the large, medium or small organizations, how to increase profitability and improve competitiveness and company¢s overall functioning.

The second one is to present to audience how to start up and develop business through entrepreneurial culture and modern technology, help them anticipate future trends, source capital and reach investors.

Additionally, models of such national economies will be presented, ensuring the sustainable economic success with their innovative approach and "start up" mentality, which can serve as a role model in developing national economy, cities and regions in Croatia.

The motive is to facilitate changes in values and habits, changes in majority of population lacking initiative, creativity and openness for new business ideas and opportunities, what makes the current economic situation in Croatia even worse.
