The best projects, evaluated by the selection jury, will get a spot at ZIP. Startup teams will be able to work on their projects in the pre-incubation phase and receive mentor support. The goal is that in a couple of months the teams at ZIP put together functional prototypes, so that they can be presented to investors, the media and potential customers at a special demo event. The ZIP coworking space will be available to teams completely free of charge.

Apart from the working space itself, the teams will also benefit from the active support, help and advice from the ZIP mentor network, which includes experienced entrepreneurs and investors from Croatia, soon to be joined by international ones.

ZIP is going to actively promote the projects of its member teams in regional and international startup circles through media, presentations and similar events. The teams that achieve significant progress during their stay at the incubator will have an opportunity to give a presentation at ZIP Demo Day.

Lectures and workshops will continuously be held at ZIP: one-day and multiple-day seminars, ZIP MasterClass lectures, international webinars via video streaming, hackathons and other types of education particularly intended for startup teams and their projects.

Ultimately, ZIP is going to become a central hub of the local and regional startup community, and its member teams will find themselves at the center of that world, which will provide them with an abundance of business and networking opportunities.
