Spiritus: Student Team Develops Digital Memory Platform

June the 25th, 2021 - A Croatian team behind a startup called Spiritus has developed an innovative platform through which every single person can leave their own digital trace.

As Poslovni Dnevnik/Ivan Tominac writes, everyone walking this Earth will leave some sort of trace behind them as they go, and every human story is special and deserves to be told. A team of six Croatian students from the Spiritus platform for creating digital memories also took care of that, and thanks to them, every human's story will be just a single click away.

The idea to create the Spiritus platform was born from listening to the song "Andrija Cordaš" by some of the best Croatian tamburitza players, and the whole business and creative concept, which is entirely unique on the market, began from that very song.

Dino Jerkovic, one of the founders and director of the Spiritus platform, discussed the story behind this storytelling platform. Listening to the song with his colleague Marko Soljic, he came to the conclusion that every story is worth telling.

“Did you know that 99 percent of people who have ever lived are forgotten as if they never existed? It isn't known what they looked like, what they did, or even what their names were. One very ordinary evening, Marko and I hung out with the team and accidentally put two and two together. Since we’ve both been in the IT world for a few years now and we’ve already created one app together, we saw some huge potential for this project.

We hurried to the big board in our living room and recorded the skeleton of functionality which was later turned into the Spiritus startup. Through Spiritus, every person can make a digital memory of their loved one, and we'll enable the proper technology to keep that memory alive forever,'' said Jerkovic from Spiritus.

From the very beginning, they wanted to make Spiritus accessible to everyone, so they aimed to make the name simple and adapted it to a larger number of linguistic areas. On the other hand, as far as the concept of the application itself is concerned, they agreed that they must respect the three vital foundations in order to ensure the best possible user experience. Simple, nice to look at and above all - secure.

With each use of the platform, it's important to us that the user feels the above three points. As for the application itself, the core of our idea is that the user can easily, beautifully and securely create a digital memory in the form of stories, photos and videos. Specifically, the Keeper of Memories has the privilege of composing a multitude of individual stories about, let's say, their grandparents, inserting pictures or videos of what they looked like throughout their lives, and receive stories from other people about them and thus complete their memory of them.

In addition, Spiritus users will be able to set the location of their loved one’s grave within the app itself, and users walking through the city cemetery will receive a notification that a digital memory is near them. As such, the memory of a person is not just some stone with a name, surname, and their date of birth and death, but a set of stories about that person prepared by someone. The experience of walking through the city cemetery can thus become different and more inspiring,'' added Jerkovic.

Just like the stories that will be written on Spiritus, theirs is special in many ways. The Spiritus team was started by a group of Croatian philosophy students, and they proved that the study you come from is not really an important factor in starting your own business, by winning the largest student competition in the development of LUMEN applications.

In addition to having won awards, they have already managed to attract investments, and the one that helped them to achieve their goals is the one amounting to 50,000 euros from the Fil Rouge Capital Fund.

The story is unfolding all the time for Spiritus, and recently they have strengthened their team with a few new members.

“I can proudly say that our team is currently richer with some new members. Mateo Stjepanovic and Marin Grbic have become our new developers, and Petar Zeman is our designer who will enable the application to be truly beautiful,'' said Jerkovic. Their goal is to become the centre of the largest number of untold life stories out there, ie a symbol of digital memories.

“Our main goal is really to keep all the memories created within Spiritus eternal. Fortunately, blockchain technology can allow for that, and we're currently in the phase of inserting that revolutionary technology into the architecture of our system,'' explained Jerkovic.

"Currently, our application is in the testing phase and we believe that by the end of the month we'll have a ready application for the first Croatian users who have an Android device. Before autumn this year, our goal is an app placed on iOS devices and a web appl, and then we plan to scale the application to the English-speaking area,'' concluded Jerkovic.

Teenlifting - Croatian Rejuvination Method Recognised in Beauty Industry

June the 21st, 2021 - Teenlifting, a Croatian anti-aging method, is gaining when it comes to recognition in the often demanding and challenging world of beauty.

As Poslovni Dnevnik/Marija Crnjak writes, Dr. Sanja Malbasa Gosovic is the founder of the Teenlifting centre. 30 years ago, she devised a unique method of rejuvenation and improvement of health through muscle electrostimulation, expanding it through a franchise around the world.

The Teenlifting brand is protected in Croatia, the EU, China, the USA, Switzerland, Great Britain, countries in Croatia's immediate region, and this method was named one of the six best natural non-invasive cosmetic methods in the American magazine As If. Under the slogan "activate, don't plasticise", Malbasa has been rejuvenating the skin and bodies of many public figures for years.

The Teenlifting face and neck franchise can be purchased in Croatia and abroad. So far, 18 have been opened - in Croatia, Slovenia, Serbia, Slovenia, Germany, Switzerland, the UK, Austria, South Africa, Montenegro and in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The centre in Zagreb currently employs 4 physiotherapists who are also franchise educators.

Along with the franchise, you also get the exclusive right to use the Teenlifting method in a certain area, which ensures a guarantee of quality. Sanja's daughter Nina Gosovic took over the organisation of the franchise and marketing business 5 years ago, so this has become a real family business.

"Preserving the quality of the brand is very important to us, because we've been working on the development of the method and quality for 30 years, and we're continuing to work and reinvest most of the profits," said Sanja Malbasa, who began developing the method in Split.

Education in cosmetics and acupuncture followed, and after realising in practice that needle treatment with electrostimulation with an acupunctoscope has a better effect than a facelift, the story went in the direction of the electrostimulation of human muscles.

“With experts from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and a manufacturer of physical therapy equipment, I developed a method of electrostimulation, which has progressed over the years thanks to new materials and effects. Thus, the discovery of electrically conductive fabric about 15 years ago opened new possibilities for creating electrodes that I could sew,'' explained Sanja Malbasa.

Teenlifting is defined as a natural method of stimulating all of the muscles of the body and face at the same time, ie the stimulation of large muscle groups, for which newly designed electrodes are used as well as standard electrodes, placed by a non-standard method.

Sanja Malbasa Gosovic pointed out that the beauty of the "side effect" of the method is that it has great results in terms of the prevention and rehabilitation of various health problems, from incontinence and migraines to maintaining fitness and vitality, to serious conditions such as cerebral palsy and muscle atrophy. That's why patients, the elderly, and those who suffer from incontinence, headaches, and weak muscle tone also come to her beauty centre.

"This method of electrostimulation of the muscles differs from needing to do exercise itself because it equally uses more muscles than would be achieved with various movements and it doesn't burden the heart, joints or tendons, which is why it's safe for anyone to do. Depending on where it's applied, it brings significant results even in more difficult cases,'' explained Malbasa Gosovic.

Her business is currently expanding mainly in the area of ​​the face and neck, and the wider application of the method with the aim of rehabilitation is expected with the launch of a new product on the market, the FitStim device for stimulating the whole body.

Prices of Croatia's Favourite Slavonian Delicacies Rising

June the 19th, 2021 - The prices of some of Croatia's favourite Slavonian delicacies are rising, with the price of the much loved Slavonian kulen potentially rising by as much as 100 kuna.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, the price of some Slavonian delicacies, such as kulen, could increase by 100 kuna, as was reported local portal Glas Slavonije.

Producers of dried meat products from the Eastern Croatian regions of Slavonia and Baranja, when compared to the producers of some other products, only partially felt the negative effects of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The bigger producers of these typically Slavonian delicacies, who pointed out back in June last year that the pandemic had indeed caused certain problems with placement, especially from mid-March to mid-May, felt the most issues of all.

"People weren't going out and buying our products, and their purchasing power was reduced. However, the decline in those spring sales was partially compensated for during the summer and autumn of last year,'' said the director of the company Baranjka, Miodrag Komlenic.

Smaller producers of such produce claim to have managed to sell their stocks, and production, despite the pandemic, has thankfulyl not really been reduced - some have even expanded their offer.

"I can't say that the pandemic has stopped our sales. The demand is growing more and more, so I left only a certain amount in stock to meet the needs of our long-term customers,'' said Slobodan Stankovic.

He is also considering selling his items in smaller packages (of 100 or 200 grams), and is adamant that one kilo of kulen in his next ''round'' is going to cost 250 kuna (the current price is around 200 kuna per kilogram).

"One kilo of my kulen has been 200 kuna for years. But I think that the real price should be between 250 and 300 kuna,'' said Milodrag Stojkovic, the owner of a family farm (OPG) which produces Slavonian delicacies. He manages to rationalise this decision because of the raising of the price of fodder, which should soon increase by as much as 35 percent.

"Corn has already risen in price, I have to pay 200 kuna for 100 kilograms of that. I have to charge people these price increases because doing business will be impossible and completely unprofitable otherwise. Rising prices for various items are common, so it must be the same with cured meat products,'' Stojkovic concluded for Glas Slavonije.

Croatian Designers to Create New Workwear for A1 Croatia

June the 16th, 2021 - A team of Croatian designers are set to design A1 Croatia's workwear in a brand new tender which works to keep locally made products in mind.

With the coronavirus pandemic having highlighted, among other things, that we can't always rely on imports and that trying to produce as much as we can locally is the best direction to go in, A1 Croatia have their eyes set on talented Croatian designers, of which there are plenty. 

As Poslovni Dnevnik/Marija Crnjak writes, Telekom A1 Hrvatska/Croatia has announced a tender for Croatian designers to apply for. The tender invites them to design new work clothes for their employees, with a prize fund for the best solutions amounting to 30,000 kuna.

As they explained from the aforementioned company, the whole process, from the selection of the design solution to the very execution and application will be carried out in cooperation with Naftalin, a Croatian company which deals the production of workwear. By making this business move, A1 Croatia wants to give an incentive to Croatian designers and companies.

“The choice of such a company was prompted by the desire to show how some support for a creatively strong part of society can easily enable it to become more visible and to improve and develop its business.

We're aware of the exceptional importance of local production for every community, because we can only grow when the community in which we operate is also growing,'' said Iva Ancic, head of brand and marketing communications at A1 Croatia.

The panel for the selection of the design of the new work clothes also provided a place for one of the employees who, with his advice and first-hand knowledge, will help make the new clothes created by Croatian designers as comfortable as possible and according to the wishes of the employees themselves, the company explains.

Zagreb Company Bellabeat Presents Brand New Smart Bracelet - Ivy

June the 16th, 2021 - The Zagreb company Bellabeat, a Croatian startup which has gained traction and a lot of attention as time has gone on, has presented its brand new smart bracelet.

As Novac/Bernard Ivezic writes, Bellabeat initially started producing smart bracelets seven years ago, of which, according to Business Insider, Leaf Urban and Leaf Chakra were named the best pieces of smart jewellery in the entire world back in February. The company has since completed the development of a new smart bracelet named Ivy. There are more than 50,000 pre-orders for it already, and this also means that the Zagreb company Bellabeat has more than 50,000 new subscribers.

Namely, with the creation of this new smart bracelet, the Zagreb company Bellabeat is changing its business model, and now its bracelets include a monthly subscription.

Sandro Mur, the co-founder and CEO of the Zagreb company Bellabeat, explained that Ivy better monitors heart and respiratory health, enabling the company to provide its customers with better quality information not only about their physical health but also their mental health, which is often forgotten about but is just as important.

Twenty long months of development...

''We're very proud of the new Bellabeat product, which we've been designing and perfecting for more than 20 months to come to a solution that is perfectly aligned with all the needs of women today,'' says Mur.

He explains that Ivy measures calories, distances, active pulse, exercise intensity during the day and monitors meditation, and at night it monitors sleep duration, sleep quality, resting heart rate, respiration and heart coherence. Based on the above and additional data collected through the app, Mur states that they offer a range of indicators on body readiness, wellness and even menstrual cycle.

''Ivy has advanced sensors to measure steps and active time spent, as well as all other parameters it monitors, and the design, which is aimed at women, offers them the chance to monitor their body dynamics throughout the day to allow them to better understand their own body and individual needs better than any other similar product on the market,'' says Mur.

In saying that, he is primarily thinking of the loudest competitor in the segment of smart items - Apple. The Zagreb company Bellabeat, for example, claims that its smart device can estimate when the user should give up on doing their next exercise due to exhaustion and a risk of becoming unwell. This assessment is made by advanced algorithms developed by the Croatian startup itself, and are trained on what is probably the largest private health database in Croatia.

The company states that it has more than 100 billion sets of health data about its users. This is an extremely important piece of information because the more data a algorithm can be trained on, the more accurate it is. It isn't known how much Bellabeat smart jewellery has been sold to date, but the latest known data from 2017 indicates that it had then sold more than 700,000 pieces. This is a record that has not been surpassed by any other Croatian startup.

Mur, who recently announced he was raising a 10 million US dollar investment, is considering one acquisition and plans to go public within three years and sees an opportunity to open up the corporate wellness market with a new product.

''I think that we've become much more aware of our own health and the health of the people we work and are around, and that more and more employers and managers understand the importance of caring for employee health,'' says Mur.

Coko Jagodica: Valentina Anic's Special Strawberries Exported to EU

June the 15th, 2021 - Coko Jagodica owned by Valentina Anic are the perfect Croatian item for anyone with a sweet tooth. It seems they've not only been well received across the country, but also across the European Union (EU).

As Poslovni Dnevnik/Marta Duic writes, Coko Jagodica is a Zagreb-based brand started by a young entrepreneur Valentina Anic from her very own kitchen. Each individual strawberry is bathed in premium Belgian chocolate, without any artificial colours, they are from organic farms and are hand-decorated. Today, three months after starting the business, Coko Jagodica is delivered throughout the Republic of Croatia, and Valentina is expanding her offer, slowly but surely conquers foreign markets.

“The brand was launched very spontaneously, I'd even say by accident and out of pure love for sweet food. The idea came up on Valentine's Day this year, and the day after I opened my Instagram profile, well, that's how it all started. For now, I do everything myself, but with the increase in work and as time goes on, I'll soon have to look for employees. This business year has been the most important for me. Given that this is the first year of me doing business, it's very important what impression I leave. Therefore, I tried to pay attention to every detail,'' explained Valentina Anic. The most significant investment for her was the very starting up of her business, and her story is spreading further from month to month.

"So far, I've agreed to cooperate with two agencies for organising events. There are a lot of questions and agreements that we still have to negotiate and it seems to me that there will be more associates soon,'' explained Coko Jagodica's owner. Her focus was first on strawberries and chocolate, and she recently introduced apples and cherries, and soon it will be the turn of other fruits.

In addition to standard chocolates in the form of chocolate boxes (smaller and larger packages) Anic introduced boxes and bouquets with flowers or towers in the shape of cakes. Initially, she planned to sell via social media, more precisely through Facebook or Instagram, and her main goal was for customers to choose what they wanted and arrange their order, and today she is making new plans and devising other sales channels.

"Considering that the business started very well in a relatively short period of time, we were being asked more and more about whether there's a small shop where people can come without making a prior order to choose and buy ready-made products. Ideas and plans about that are in my head,'' explained Anic.

Coko Jagodica is produced in her own home, that is, in her kitchen. Later, a special space in front of the house became a place intended exclusively for Coko Jagodica, and the young entrepreneur isn't lacking in her desire to expand production.

''There's such a great love for this job that the strawberries are very often being prepared all night long, without sleep. The biggest order so far was for Mother's Day, and 50 kilos of strawberries were sold on Saturday and Sunday,'' revealed the innovative Anic.

Belgian chocolate, which is a key ingredient in this dessert along with the fruit, is sourced directly from its original producers. As for the berries, they are from organic farms, and she buys them from family members located in the vicinity of Zagreb.

“Early in the morning, they deliver freshly picked strawberries to me every day. They're grown in greenhouses, so supply is possible all year round. The interest is great, each strawberry is hand-decorated down to the last detail and I’m sure people will recognise that. Besides, this os something completely new on the Croatian market. In addition to delivering across Croatia, we also sell them abroad. These strawberries most often travel to Germany, Italy and Austria. That percentage is still significantly lower than the sales on the Croatian market, but it's also growing more and more,'' points out Anic, who has her eye firmly on further business development when the time is right.

"First of all, the focus is on the opening of a small sweet bar in the centre of Zagreb, where people will be able to come, sit down, drink a glass of champagne with strawberries, pick up their order or buy ready-made products without prior notice,'' concluded Coko Jagodica's owner.

Osijek Company Aurea Group Creates Croatian Water Bike

June the 12th, 2021 - Italy might have its famed gondolas, but could a Croatian water bike from the Osijek company Aurea Group (Grupa) be the next big thing along the Croatian coast and in the country's many lakes and rivers?

As Poslovni Dnevnik/Lucija Spiljak writes, the very first Croatian water bike, made by the Osijek company Aurea Group, has been around since this month. "A Croatian product for the global market" is the slogan of this company, which presented such the first Croatian water bike, Aurea Bike, at Marina Kastela. The water bike will give both local and foreign tourists the opportunity to experience the Croatian Adriatic coast, as well as the many Croatian rivers and lakes in a new, safe, different and at the same time ecological way.

The Osijek company Aurea Group has announced that it is starting with serial production, and although they come from "flat Slavonia" surrounded by rivers and lakes, they will first present their bike on a tour of Croatia in sunny Dalmatia, in the aforementioned marina, where those interested will be able to try it out until June the 13th.

They want to place them throughout Croatia's immediate region and the EU

There are only a few manufacturers of water bikes in the world, and the Osijek company Aurea Group is among them, according to the company's director, Alen Alic. On the world market, this Croatian company stood out owing to its design with unsinkable floats filled with styrofoam, which guarantee additional safety when on the water, and it's also designed for the catamaran type of navigation. This is also an additional impetus towards health tourism and active holidays, which an increasing number of people are focusing on.

"Unfortunately, the coronavirus pandemic affected tourism and put the season into question last year and this year, so due to the uncertainty, we started presenting the products only at the beginning of June. But there's interest, and in May the first bicycles went down to Omis. The target group so far are renters on the coast. For three months, we prepared parts, orders and payments; everything has to be calculated in millimetres because serial production is done according to specific plans,'' explains Alic, who estimates that they have invested more than half a million kuna in the project so far.

Since back in pre-pandemic 2019, when they started with the water bike idea, they've mostly focused on safety and functionality. Apart from being oriented towards the Croatian coast, they're also interested in their innovation in Serbia, Montenegro and Macedonia. The company also hired an export manager for the foreign market because inquiries come from outside the region as well, more precisely from Spain, the Netherlands and even from France.

Alic says that they can deliver up to 50 bicycles in a short time, but they don't want to accumulate stock until they see how the market is standing. He also revealed the details of the production itself.

“We can deliver several dozen pieces in a short time. We have all the parts, we just need to plasticise and assemble them, but we're going to wait and see what the reactions are. We procure the propellers in Germany, and we do and produce everything else here in Croatia. For three months, we worked only on parts, laser cutting, welding, aluminum, lathe, machine and manual processing - all to make the product as safe as possible.

Our bike can’t sink, and we tested it on strong waves and among large boats to make sure it was unsinkable and safe for all users, families and children, from tipping over and letting water in. If the user, for example, hits a rock, there is styrofoam inside, which makes the bike unsinkable, and which makes us stand out on the global market.

The bike can pull up to 5 knots, but it is designed as a comfortable and easy ride at a speed of 2-3 knots (about 5 km/h). We focused mostly on getting a product with a large load capacity and a large diameter, the only important thing is to try to distribute the centre of gravity,'' explains Alic.

The Osijek company Aurea Group's water bike has an attractive design, is two metres wide and three metres long, with a load capacity of 450 kg. However, in the realisation process, Alic says, they wouldn't have succeeded if it were not for the company D&D Metal, with which they've been successfully cooperating for years now, and thanks to which they can present this piece of Croatian-made innovation today.

Bugatti Who? German Media Shower Praise on Croatian Mate Rimac

June the 10th, 2021 - The German media has been no stranger to the entire Rimac story, with numerous articles praising the Croatian Mate Rimac, being referred to as the ''Elon Musk of the Balkans'' and compared to genius and countryman Nikola Tesla. That trend hasn't stopped and the showers of praise from Germany continue for this remarkable entrepreneur from Livno.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, the popular German publication Der Spiegel has featured the brand new car made by Croatian Mate Rimac, as reported by Index. The beautiful new Nevera is described by the publication as "superior", and Rimac has been referred to as a person who is "introducing new standards" to the electric car industry.

“The 2000 hp Rimac Nevera sports car demonstrates the superiority of electric drive on the racetrack,” Der Spiegel points out in an article entitled ''Bugatti was yesterday. Now comes Rimac's Nevera.''

The German paper also states that Croatian Mate Rimac's truly stunning Nevera represents "the current peak of a brilliant career", during which Rimac, in ten years from being "completely unknown" became an advisor to some of the most famous managers in the automotive industry, even advising the bosses of Volkswagen and Porsche on switching to electric cars.

However, Der Spiegel critically states that "Nevera plays on the lowest instincts", reports Index.

"We wanted to show off what is technically possible. And, of course, have a little fun,'' Rimac told Der Spiegel, who recalls that he started his career as a race driver. "Infidelity is not a contribution to mass mobility, but it's a fun activity for a few," explains Rimac.

Despite appealing to speed lovers and perhaps ''the lowest human instincts'', Nevera should also demonstrate "what Rimac Automobili can produce". According to the Index, Der Spiegel believes that Rimac's "technology can make ordinary vehicles faster, more economical, or safer".

Podravka Factory to Undergo Modernisation for Manufacturing of New Products

June the 9th, 2021 - The Podravka factory (Kalnik) in continental Croatia is set to get an enormous cash injection to modernise its facilities and equipment to make way for the production of yet more products from this much loved Croatian company.

As Poslovni Dnevnik/Sergej Novosel Vuckovic writes, the Kalnik Podravka factory located in the continental city of Varazdin is being modernised, after which new food products from this globally recognised company will be created.

The company received a huge 19.37 million euro grant from European Union (EU) funds from the Ministry of Agriculture, because the "Investment in the modernisation of fruit and vegetable processing plants, new technologies and new products from the Kalnik factory" project owned by Podravka passed the tender of the rural development programme for the implementation of measure 4.2. 1.

The works, which come with a hefty price tag of 40.6 million kuna include the purchase of new equipment and the reconstruction of the Podravka warehouse, as well as its subsequent conversion into a fully equipped, modern production space.

The new equipment on the cards are a line for the receiving, processing and aseptic filling of fruit, the purchase of additional vacuum boilers, all to increase production capacity, and the packaging equipment this Podravka factory uses will be changed and modernised.

This investment will also introduce a set of brand new products: jams, marmalades, new types of ajvar, vegetable and fruit spreads, fruit fillings and more. This particular Podravka factory in Kalnik is the location in which sterilised and pasteurised vegetables, mustard, horseradish and marinades are otherwise produced.

These investments in the company's Varazdin factory aim, among other things, to achieve a wider and more diverse range of products, which will increase the price competitiveness of Podravka's much loved items on both the Croatian market and indeed on foreign markets.

World Food Atlas Rates Two Croatian Cheeses Among Best in World!

June the 5th, 2021 - When it comes to what Croatia has to offer, most people will likely immediately think of the sun, the glorious Adriatic sea, the many islands and the wine. Croatin gastronomy is certainly up there on that same list, and Croatian cheeses are becoming more and more well known internationally. Two Croatian cheeses are doing so well, in fact, that they've been ranked among the planet's very best.

Pag cheese is probably the first of the Croatian cheeses to spring to the mind of the majotiy of people remotely familiar with the country's production of this much loved food item.

The bizarre moonlike northern Adriatic island of Pag, the northern part of which belongs to Lika-Senj County and the central and southern part to Zadar County, is home to some of the most mouthwatering Croatian cheese for those who aren't lactose intolerant, of course. This island produces cheese which is then exported and taken all over the world to be enjoyed by cheese lovers, and it has firmly placed the entire country on the cheese map of the globe.

The World Food Atlas from Taste Atlas has picked up on the treasure trove which is Croatian gastronomy, more precisely on Croatian cheeses, and has declared two domestic products to be among the best the world has to offer.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, The World Food Atlas is a well-known website which is a must-browse for all food lovers or ''foodies'', and now they have published a revised ranking with the world's best cheeses.

On the list of the top 100 best rated cheeses according to the votes of the audience, there are as many as two Croatian cheeses. Skripavac took a more than respectable 61st place, and the famous, aforementioned Pag cheese has taken an extremely impressive 14th place.
