How does it work?

If you apply, your application will be evaluated by expert committee in multiple phases. Only the best applications will move to the next phase. Phases are:
Up to 20 applications with minimum of 7,5 points will be approved in this phase. The criteria are project description quality and vision (0-5 points), innovativeness (0-5 points) and market potential (0-5 points). The preselection is made based completely on your written application.

Finalists will be selected from 20 participants in 1-on-1 conversations with expert judges in this phase. All the applicants will be evaluated based on following 8 criteria (each has 0-5 points): problem, solution, market, competition, team, financial model, business plan and finally achievements.

How to win?

The purpose of this programme is to support innovative new business ideas with large market potential. First thing you should have is such business idea. Applications with stronger proof of concept will get better chances of winning. Make sure you write your application in a way that makes it easy to read and understand, not too long but also addressing all the important questions and elements of your project. Don’t forget to include all your achievements and strong sides.
Startups selected in preselection phase will be invited to pitch trainings where you will learn how to present your project in brief and effective way.

What if you win?

Although you might be tempted to “obisit rukavice o klin”, “povuć se na vrhu” and “živit na lovorikama”, we would advise against that. Mostly because winning GITR Split means you are just getting started.
The money you won has to be spent on activities which will take your business project closer to the market and you will have to provide evidence of this. Also, you will have to participate in Global meetup, and do your best to win it.

Why is this in English?

English is “lingua franca” in the world of startups and investors. Our judges and other participants are chosen for their expertise and competences, which means that many of them don’t speak Croatian language. This is why your application and all the pitching is done in English language.

  • organizing it into the sections listed in the Table of Contents below,
  • providing a series of examples that help illustrate how the policies may be implemented by Gribbio and;
  • defining and capitalizing a few terms that are used more than once for simplicity and brevity.

When we refer to “Gribbio?, we mean the Gribbio entity that acts as the controller or processor of your information, as explained in more detail in the “Identifying the Data Controller and Processor? section below.
