As part of the dissemination of the project Digital Europe, GET INOVATION Bitola organized the Startup Europe Week 2017!
GET INNOVATION Bitola had the pleasure of being a co-organizer of the #SEW17 which was completely dedicated on technology and the digital age. Taking in consideration that GET INNOVATION works on the concepts suggested in the Digital Agenda for Europe for a second year, the contacts and the information were spread to the large number of visitors at this event. Around 100 visitors, startup founders, entrepreneurs, students and representatives from institutions were part of this year’s event. The aim of the event was to present successful business stories, sharing information for opening of startups and promotion of the concept of business digitalization, and the importance of ICT nowadays. The event was divided in three sections, panel presentations, business speed dates and freelance room. GET INNOVATION Bitola would like to express special thanks to the companies iSource and 3Mode, Agency for Employment Bitola, freelancer Jovan Cokleski, Dr.Temt Company, Rosetta Stone Bitola, Private Center Bonboncija Bitola, Vizija Bitola, Law Office Tomevski, JP Komunalec Bitola, Elementary School Kole Kaninski and the Chamber of Commerce – Regional Office Bitola that were directly involved in the SEW Program.
Startup Europe Week – Bitola was organized on February 8th at the Technical faculty-Bitola and it was one day event that became a celebration of entrepreneurship and business in Bitola. The program consisted of 4 segments:
1. Panel presentations with tech company iSource, startup company 3Mode Bitola and representatives from Macedonian Employment Agency.
2. Networking session during which people were meeting and exchanging contacts.
3. Business speed dates – 10 company representatives held short meetings with students and people who are at the start of their career. This way they practiced how to present themselves and how to speak business. Companies and attendees at the speed dates were amazed of the concept and next year they committed to attending and doing longer sessions of Business speed dates.
4. Freelance room with Jovan Cokleski – we discovered that the concept of freelance needs to be presented to the Bitola public and we invited a successful freelancer to speak more about his experience. The aim was to motivate young people and inspire them to research more what outstanding opportunities the digital age offers to them.
