Construction work at Trokut in full swing

The goal of the Trokut centre is to provide a space for young IT entrepreneurs who will ultimately create both positive business climate and new jobs in Šibenik

In less than three years, thanks to a non-refundable grant from the Operational programme competitiveness and cohesion 2014 – 2020 of the European Union, the City of Šibenik completes the construction of the most modern business incubator in the region. From this autumn, the Centre for entrepreneurship and new technologies will provide its entrepreneurs with more than 2,000 square meters of 28 functional, modern equipped units, flexible spaces, Fab lab workshop, offices, cabins and numerous other facilities.

With Trokut, the chairmen of the City wish to attract young IT entrepreneurs, who have yet to develop their business story, and to give them a space they can use for a minimal fee, so that these very same entrepreneurs could create a positive business climate by creating new jobs in the city of Šibenik.

”The IT technology is the fastest growing technology in the world. In this respect, Trokut gives us an opportunity to stimulate innovativeness in Šibenik and it gives both space and opportunity to anyone who wants to start developing a private business, but can’t implement it due to lack of space and financial resources. The City will enable them, provide them with the space and the most favourable conditions. Therefore, it is not in the City’s interest to earn money, but to enable young people to have a good start off with the European grant. They will provide us with their knowledge and ambition, and we will provide them with space and time so they could realize their project. Ultimately, our goal is to make these entrepreneurs self-sufficient both for themselves and for their employees, ” the Mayor Željko Burić stated for the Šibenski portal news site.

In parallel with the completion of the construction work at Trokut, the surrounding area and the access road are being reconstructed as well, while the furnishing of the Centre will follow immediately after. The handover of Trokut is scheduled for early summer, and we hope to see its first tenants from this autumn.
