Josip Bolkovic, co-founder of the startup SportTourism, compared this project with Booking.com for sport activities. Tourists often do not know what activities are offered in the area of the place where they stayed, what is the price of the activity, where the activities are located, and this project sees the answer in a mobile application that locates the user and displays them current offer. Activities can be booked immediately in this way, and there are reviews of other users, offering additional information. A business plan mostly refers to the percentage of the transaction, so it comes about B2C and B2B approach. SportTourism one of the startup incubator located in Zagreb entrepreneurship incubation - ZIP.
One of the first world magazines who recognized Sporttourism.com as a good project is Yachting blue. Yachting blue is one of the leading German Travel & Yachting magazines. It is the magazine for the people who feel good on the water, so we gave them a notice that we were born on the water :)
