”The aim of INAT Summit is to educate participants about application of new technologies and to empower startups on the lookout for investments as they obtain know-how from expert speakers.” (Netokracija)

”INAT brand was coined as a word play, since ‘‘inat’’ (the spirit of rebelliousness) is actually the competitive advantage that Serbia (and The Western Balkans) has. In English INAT acronym means Innovation Attitude, i.e. the eager attitude towards innovation. At the conference IT workforce will connect, become more competent and continue their cooperation even after the event.”
