Benefits for startups
Ahead of Podim, we spoke to Nikola Pavešić, Director of Startups at Infobip, to find out more about the Infobip Startup Tribe and how startups benefit most from their program.
What is the ideal startup from the perspective of stage and service type?
“We have startups from over 40 different industries in our program currently, which shows that we are pretty industry agnostic. That said, we have noticed that startups from industries such as Fintech, Ecommerce, Retail, Martech, Transportation and Healthcare seem to benefit the most from our program. Stage-wise, we are looking for startups that are in a product stage/have an MVP to which they could integrate our solutions.”
Do members of the Tribe also cooperate with each other?
“For us, it’s all about creating a community, so we’re constantly working to connect our startups with our partners and each other. For example, at our annual Shift conference, we give 20 startups the opportunity to showcase their business in the Startup Expo area, participate in a pitching competition and meet with potential investors. And we have found that these situations serve as great facilitators for founders to get into conversations with each other, share their experiences, wins and failures.”
What is the most valuable benefit of your service for startups that startups are not generally aware of?
“The credits we offer to startups carry a lot of value and potential for upscaling their business: the messaging credits they get can be used for a variety of things, besides just authentication, for example. Why not build a chatbot for a specific channel and enhance your customer service offering? Or engage them through our SaaS solution Moments and help your marketing team? The range of products we offer is quite extensive, and we work hard to educate startups: we want them to make the most of the credits we give them and help them through some of the growing pains.”
Which one is the most impressive Infobip client that showcases the mighty power of your platform?
“As already stated, we offer a wide range of solutions suitable for different industries, so we are honored to have clients such as Uber, Meta, Bolt, HubSpot, Rappi and many more in our portfolio.”
Podim Pitching Competition awards
In this year’s Podim Pitching competition, semifinalists that want Infobip services will get $10.000,00 in Infobip products, and finalists will get $15.000,00 in Infobip products.
And this year, Infobip is also coming to Podim, where you will have a perfect opportunity to find out more about this startup program and its solutions.
Nikola Pavešić also wants to say this to those attending Podim: “No matter what size your business, it always helps to remember the basics: great communication opens doors to better transparency, and consequently better business deals. And great communication happens when it is supported by the best communication practices in which we specialize. So if you are interested in discovering how to engage your clients better, seek out our representatives at Podim and they will be more than happy to chat.”
