This annual startup competition is part of the SparkME tradition to bring together successful startups from all over Europe and challenge the power of their ideas, their potential to grow and the team diversity. The main pre-conditions for participation have been the founding date (startups founded after September 20, 2014) and the amount of funding previously received (no more than $2.5 million). The other 9 startups that have entered the finals were: Bee and Me (Montenegro), Craftinity (Poland), Emily (Croatia), Get Hired With Me (Montenegro), HUM app (Kosovo), Kidster (Montenegro/Serbia), Letpet.in (Croatia), Smart Lumies (Croatia), and Yorefy (Slovenia). They had free access to advisers, mentors, and workshops, and have also enjoyed networking with investors, industry experts and serial entrepreneurs.
dryTools is already familiar to the SuperFounders Live readers as the Novi Sad-based startup company in which SC Ventures invested their first 300.000 euro. The company was co-founded by Marko Gaćeša, Duško Vesin and Nikola Milinković, the team who developed a smart software that delivers high-quality results and speeds up the coding process up to 4 times.
