Zagreb FI Grad, Festomat, Wins Belgrade Venture Forum Competition

Posted by Amity Sims on 2013-11-21

Zagreb Founder Institute grad, Festomat, is changing the way Croatians experience events. The startup is transforming the traditional perception of music festivals into interactive and entertaining experience using NFC tickets, wristbands and smartphones. After launching in Zagreb in March of 2013, Festomat has gained some serious traction and is likely on its way to dominating the local ticketing market.

With such rapid (and impressive) growth, Festomat’s success hasn’t gone unnoticed. The startup has been described as "Silicon Valley - worthy", and has had numerous features in Business.hr, Dnevnik.hr, and many other prominent Croatian media channels. Most recently, netokracija announced Festomat as the winner of the Belgrade Venture Forum Startup Competition. It’s reported they were a "wild card" pick by StartLabs incubator in Belgrade, Serbia. Read the full article here.

Amidst the team’s busy schedule of pitch events, conferences, and lending a hand to helping out new startup founders, last month, Business.hr stole a moment of founder and CEO, Vladimir Puškaš, time for a quick interview. Puškaš shared how Festomat operates, what makes their service different, and why NFC is the future of ticketing. Click here to read the interivew on Business.hr.
