Resounding success of vidi e-novation

The number of products that won Vidi e-novation 2006 award and achieved worldwide success over the last year positively surprised us

Vidi e-novation was created with the aim to find Croatia’s high quality and innovative information and communications products able to compete internationally. This award tries to provide level of recognition for top ICT projects in domestic sphere, as well as higher credibility and easier access to financial sources.

The idea to promote Croatia’s innovative projects originated in Vidi Publishing offices and over the first year it received support from Croatia’s leading companies and prominent institutions helping to realise the projects, such as: Rudjer Boskovic Institute, Croatian Chamber of Economy, T- Croatian Telecom, Ericsson Nikola Tesla, PricewaterhouseCoopers, HPB – Croatian Postal Bank and Podravka. This year we welcome Dalekovod Company, which has also joined this remarkable group, that is, forerunners of Croatia’s highquality companies. After last year’s award presentation ceremony at the Westin Hotel in Zagreb, gathering the cream of domestic political and corporative scene, covered by almost every Croatian leading media, we launched an intensive home as well as international promotion of awarded Vidi e-novation projects.

Each month, Vidi magazine covered the development of awarded Vidi e-novation projects on several pages – their growth in Croatia with certain international “steps”. Due to our numerous media partners, a great deal of media space was occupied by Vidi e-novation winners months after the award presentation ceremony. Some of the winners claim the media coverage resulted in their business partners perceiving them in a completely new light. – their work now required less effort. Trying to overcome Croatia’s context, we presented Vidi e-novation winners abroad as well – for instance, at a boutique ICT conference Distree in Monte Carlo or as part of Croatia’s presentation at CeBIT fair in Hannover. Such international promotion also contributed to last year’s Vidi e-novation winners to conclude numerous impressive international deals.

Organizing the event, we are stunned by the fact this year’s high-quality applications for Vidi e-novation are not one bit inferior to last year projects. Moreover, several Vidi e-novation 2007 jury members believe some of this year’s projects substantially stand out against last year ones. Therefore, over the next year it shall be even more interesting to monitor the development of awarded Vidi e-novation 2007 projects on home and international markets.
