This was the main conclusion of SPARK Hardware Startups event, where we gathered experts for hardware startups and IT enthusiasts from Herzegovina and beyond. This all started the day before the main event, at the 1:1 Mentoring Session with our guests Aleksander Tõnnissonom from BuildIt (Estonia). We organized this mentoring part exclusively for startups, and nine of them had approximately 20 minutes alone with Alex, who gave them concrete advice and guidance. The next day (Oct 29), little after 4 PM, our event started. These are our keynote speakers who shared their opinions on this new Internet of Things (IoT) trend: Microsoft representative for Bosnia and Herzegovina Admir Tuzović, web developer at NHome startup Ivan Filipovic, founder of accelerator for hardware startups BuildIt Aleksander Tõnnisson, startup activist and entrepreneur Stevica Kuharski, manager at NHome startup Marko Zeljko, and representatives of IT faculties in Mostar Emina Junuz and Tomislav Volarić. We've heard a lot of advice and concrete examples, and we hope that our visitors have learned some new things and that they are encouraged by this event to launch their own startups. We would like to thank our partners and sponsors. The brochure can be downloaded here.
