Jon Bradford, one of Europe’s foremost entrepreneurs, accelerator founders and startup mentors, will be visiting Zagreb and working with the ZIP teams from March 6 to 8. We have to say we are really excited about the opportunity to welcome Jon to our startup community! Jon’s visit is kindly supported by the British Embassy in Zagreb as part of the ongoing partnership between ZIP and the Embassy.

Jon Bradford is a mentor at several European accelerator programs. He is best known for founding Springboard, a leading UK and European program.

Jon’s visit comes at a key moment for the European startup scene. Only several days ago, on Feb 20th, it was announced that TechStars, one of the top global accelerators based in Boulder, Colorado, US, is expanding into Europe via a merger with Springboard and thus the establishment of TechStars London, of which Jon will be the managing director.

So… apparently there will be many questions for Jon from the startup community and the media when he visits us in a couple of days!

Jon’s visit is the first in a series of events which ZIP will be organizing throughout 2013, featuring top European and US entrepreneurs and mentors visiting Zagreb and ZIP to speak publicly and work with the ZIP teams.

Follow the ZIP Facebook page and Twitter feed for more details on the schedule of Jon’s stay in Zagreb!


Next week Jon Bradford will be joining us for a MasterClass session on the next Startup srijeda (Startup wednesday). On an open panel discussion he and Ivo Špigel will talk about various entrepreneurship-related topics, share experiences and give an outlook on the future of the startup ecosystem. In the second part the attendees will be able to put their questions to Jon and Ivo.

The event will be held on March 6 at 17h at our usual ZIP.Events location in Zvonimirova 8.
