After the successful first two seasons of the Start It Up Slovenia project, in which Spar Slovenia, together with its partners, the advertising agency Formitas and the media company POP TV, brought more than 20 start up ideas to business success, for the third consecutive year Spar supports young Slovenian entrepreneurs, thus once again proving that some can do a lot on their own, but together they can do everything.
The new season of Start It Up Slovenia officially started with the opening of a special shelf at the mega market Interspar Citypark. The event was attended by all this year’s entrepreneurs, project partners, influencers and friends of the project, including entrepreneurs of the first two seasons. Strong support for these enthusiastic entrepreneurs who are aware of the opportunity that was given to them, and the unique experience before them, was almost palpable.
At the opening, Igor Mervič, General Manager of SPAR Slovenia, said: “Entrepreneurs can do a lot of work themselves, but together they can certainly be more successful. This year, we have 32 new products, so the total number of products from Start It Up Slovenia is now close to one hundred. Successful entrepreneurs, with the support of partners and above all customers, have already hired 57 new people. I think that this information speaks volumes about the success, importance and mission of the Start It Up Slovenia project.”
After months of hard work the moment came when the young Slovenian entrepreneurs placed their products on the store shelves, and finally offered them to the buyers. Months of preparation and sacrifice are forgotten, as they now proudly believe in strong customer support.
Vanja and Jure Reiner stood next to the shelves with their hair care products, 4kidsandus, and said: “The result of the unslept nights is seeing our products finally on the shelves and that is a big step for us. We are exceptionally happy, elated and full of expectations. This is one of those days that rarely happen. I can hardly describe that feeling. Perhaps I could compare the sight of our products on the shelves with the feeling of first love.”
