Split #1


The event has ended.



Share your idea, build your team and get to work: life is short, so why wasting time? Give all you’ve got and create a new business from scratch in a weekend. In a unique atmosphere, people from various backgrounds come together and develop early business concepts.

Mentors with proven experience in start-ups will guide you with first-hand tips on how to make a successful business. By Sunday, you’ll have the foundations for a functional start-up: the projects developed during the weekend will be evaluated by a panel of judges.

You can either pitch your own business idea or help a presenter develop their idea. From business guy to programmer to designer – everyone is welcome!


We expect 300 internet lovers and professionals to attend this first edition of a hopefully traditional conference located by the sunny beaches of Split, Croatia.

The track will be jam-packed with inspirational speakers that will be coming from San Francisco, and all over Eastern and Western Europe, 16 of Europe’s hottest startups, workshops and of course networking opportunities during the conference and after parties.

With all this said you can see that Startup Live Split is the place to be, to do business, to learn something and of course to have fun.
