Innovation Attitude Centre is founded in order to accomplish the following goals: capacity building for the next generation of ICT workforce and collaboration with leading international stakeholders: companies, universities, ICT organizations not only in the Balkans, but also internationally.
INAT Summit creates the third IT conference on 5-7 June in Belgrade. We expect 400 people and we intend to gather speakers from 10+ countries of the world again, with the involvement from 30+ companies.
We will focus our masterclasses around superb customer experience in software development, digital transformation, product development, as well as technologies of tomorrow (AI/M, blockchain and IoT).
INAT spirit comes from the Serbian word of perseverance, endurance, stamina, and a bit of rebelliousness: ”I will make it happen despite obstacles” which is the essence of entrepreneurship.
It corresponds well with Innovation Attitude i.e. the acronym for INAT and it fits the mission of many companies and IT communities that defy the status quo, apathy and lack of prosperity.
Excellence in ICT, brain gain instead of brain drain and entrepreneurial actions unlock the opportunities for abundance and economic stability in emerging economies, including countries in CEE.
When it comes to our reputation as organizers, we fit the mission of most ground-breaking partners. Prior to organizing this conference our team had 25+ years of working experience combined in three sectors: academia, business and institutions/ non-profits. Prior to INAT Summit our members worked at IT companies in Serbia and for international clients, The School of Engineering Management, Olympic Games in London, German Parliament, agribusiness operations in Denmark and Serbia.
Also, our team has diversity in its identity; our team ratio is women:men = 60%: 40% and we have graduated from diverse universities: computer science, management, law, engineering, economics, design and languages, etc.
So far we hosted speakers from IBM US and CEE, Hubsopt, SAP CEE, Tel Aviv Foundation, Nordeus, Serbian Blockchain Initiative and leading IT companies in CEE region, inspiring more than 600 participants at our events.

inat summit manifesto
It’s 5:30 AM.
You got up before the sunrise and you think about all the things that made your life as it is today.
The choices you made, the people you met, the adventures you pursued.
All these memories led to your life as it is today.
All these memories made you the person you are today.
It does not matter if checking your phone was the first thing you did in the morning.
It does not matter if you relied on coffee to wake you up fully.
It does not matter that during the day you will not complete all the tasks you wanted.
It does not matter that you will make mistakes in the same way as you will score successes.
What matters is that you will show up fully; you will show up with the sunrise and with the sunset; you will show up for people who matter most in your life; you will show up with your light in times of darkness, in times of transformation and volatility.
It’s 5:30 AM.
Early this morning you will take care of your school exams or your business; you will take your kids or siblings to school; you will be out there for your life partner, or bring a smile to your parents; you will overcome distances with knowledge, tech gadgets, on the cloud or the plane.
Depending on your age and life circumstances.
Still, the game of life is the same regardless if you are 16, 36 or 56.
People, time, emotions, outputs and resources matter.
You are part of the knowledge economy; you speak at least one human or programming language and ICT is your oxygen, freedom and passion.
You emigrated from does not function and serve you anymore to the world of abundance, where results count.
You see digital transformation as the inevitable transformation of humans, not hype.
You know what you want and you know you will eventually get there.
You are not confused by shiny, new objects of technologies and tools that promise Eldorado; you are in the game of life long-term.
You know that winning is not crushing it; you know that winning is understanding others better and growing exponentially when your foundations are solid.
The force is with you and within you.
The INAT spirit is what you nurture.
That Innovation Attitude.
The force that told you to keep going even when getting up at 11:30 AM was difficult.
The Fortuna that smiled at you and opened the doors of new projects and companies that seemed like your wildest dream.
The voice that whispered how much you are worth it and that everything is going to be ok, even when your paycheck did not show that.
The compassion when you helped fellow students and colleagues just starting out.
The decision to start that business when nobody could understand you because they did not see that all your weekends were invested in getting MVP right.
The mischievous thought that gave you the permission to risk your pride and go after that special girl or a boy, one in a million.
The rebellious spirit to whom you pledged to never give up on your dreams and never crush other people’s dreams.
The INAT spirit that kept the city of Belgrade going from Singidunum to Prinz Eugen Stadt times.
And the INAT spirit anywhere in the world.
The one that kept moving all entrepreneurial souls that set higher standard for their life.
Thank you for inspiring us to create one of a kind conference and educational program.
Thank you for being part of INAT Summit.
We could not have done it without you.
Your thoughts, dreams, ideas, feedback and goals are what keep us, INAT Summit team, going.
What helps us get up at 5:30 AM.
What helps us become better colleagues, entrepreneurs, kids, parents, partners, friends.
What helps us become better humans.
Who use technology, get technology, create technology, but are not addicted to it.
And we cannot wait to see you again and hear what you are up to in 2018.
Because we are all in this together…
…From E-migration to Digital Transformation.
Thank you for being part of INAT Summit.
See you in Belgrade, 12-15 April 2018.
