To motivate and encourage young people to start their own IT businesses.
In the spirit of recognizing the problems of our local community, JCI NIš has realized that the city of Niš has great potential when it comes to IT sector; however, young people lack information. Therefore, we have decided to organize an event that would help all the people interested in launching their own IT business find the information they need. So, we have come up with the concept of @Niš – the first IT conference of this amplitude in our city.
It took place in the assembly hall of the University of Niš on 19th November, 2016. The idea was to gather successful entrepreneurs from the IT sector who would share their experience with the audience.
Having launched globally successful startups and IT companies all the speakers were more than qualified to provide useful information and advice to all the people who had come to the conference.
About 200 people came to hear the inspiring stories of global success. Therefore, the participants could hear very useful information about finding sustainable ideas, funding, managing teams and much more as well as ask questions. The inspiring conversation continued during the breaks since the participants had a chance to refresh and meet the speakers. Hence, a mentor session was arranged with one of the speakers the next day.
The day ended with a panel discussion that lasted for more than an hour. The participants were very interested in asking questions and hearing what the speakers had to say.
Overall, it was a very interactive day, so we hope that @Niš will become an annual event that would gather young and ambitious people to share their knowledge and join forces in order to embark on the journey of success.
IT conference @Niš has been organised in 2016 and 2017 providing the necessary information for young IT entrepreneurs and helping them connect, network and share their experiences.
IT conference @Niš has spread the impact of JCI Niš targeting the up-and-coming field of IT that will continue to develop and grow in the years to come.
