ZIP GEN006 Demo day, first investments from crowdfunded ZIP Accelerator

by Domagoj Delimar

Yesterday we held the Demo day for our 6th generation of startups, as part of a traditional monthly gathering of the startup ecosystem, “Startup Wednesday”.

This generation started their ZIP Startup Program at the beginning of October od 2014 and yesterday they had to show what they’ve been busy with and what they accomplished in the last three months.

Apart from most of them having at least a beta version of their product they could show off, some of them already earned the trust of the first clients/customers.

Four investments

As we announced, thanks to 190 individual equity crowdfunding investors through our campaign on Seedrs this is the first time in the history of ZIP that some of the teams were supported by the seed investment.

SnapTap, Thorium and Tutotod secured the investment thanks to these funds, and secured the investment beyond the Croatian borders, by being selected among the 12 startups that entered in Bulgarian startup accelerator Eleven 2 weeks ago.

Especially interesting part of this ZIP Demo day was that there was an opportunity to try some of the products on which teams have been working on for the past three months and for example, visitors were welcomed with their SnapTap bracelets with which they could have taken photos of themselves at the ZIP Demo day booth, sharing them automatically on ther social networks, hoping to win a special prize, Sony Xperia M2 Aqua.
