STAR UP Project Soars to New Heights: A Triumph at KosICT 12th Edition

In a dazzling display of innovation and entrepreneurship, the STAR UP Project in Kosovo, funded by the European Union and executed by the Kosovo ICT Association (STIKK), recently celebrated a remarkable success at the 12th edition of KosICT.

The event, held at the KlanArena, showcased the accomplishments of 14 start-ups supported by the STAR UP Project. Each start-up presented its unique innovations at individual booths, capturing the attention of attendees and igniting curiosity throughout the venue.

One of the standout features of the event was the global networking opportunities it provided for the participating start-ups. Over the course of the two-day affair on October 13 and 14, these budding entrepreneurs engaged with tech enthusiasts and professionals from around the world. The doors opened by KosICT allowed for valuable connections, collaborations, and exploration of potential partnerships and investments, marking a significant milestone for the STAR UP Project.

Adding to the project’s triumph, two of the outstanding start-ups not only participated in the main KosICT event but also took center stage at a side event organized by the Suomen suurlähetystö Pristina – Embassy of Finland in Pristina. The cherry on top? They secured tickets to the prestigious SLUSH event, a global pinnacle of start-up and investor excellence. The Embassy of Finland’s role in facilitating this opportunity was gratefully acknowledged.

A resounding round of applause is due to the STAR UP Project, STIKK, and KosICT for orchestrating two days of overwhelming success. The connections forged, partnerships established, and opportunities unlocked during the event are the true indicators of triumph in the dynamic world of technology and innovation.

As the stakeholders bask in the glow of these achievements, the STAR UP Project looks forward to propelling its start-ups to even greater heights. The journey continues, and the commitment to fostering innovation and providing crucial support for start-ups to accelerate towards success in the tech industry remains unwavering. The STAR UP Project stands as a beacon of hope for aspiring entrepreneurs, signaling that the future is bright and filled with limitless possibilities in the ever-evolving landscape of technology. Onwards and upwards, the STAR UP Project continues to pave the way for a new era of technological innovation and business success in Kosovo and beyond.
