SFZGB2017 startup SightRun marches into 2018 with plenty of good news.
SightRun was one the Startup Factory Zagreb 2016 winners and is currently a Technology Park Zagreb member. But most importantly, SightRun is a dream for an adventurous runner. Its app fuses running with sightseeing and was first developed with Zagreb in mind. Following SightRun’s win at the Next Incubator's Bootcamp in Graz, a collaboration was born. Now this startup covers new ground as it releases its Graz tour developed in partnership with the Austrian incubator.
“By creating this tour, we’ve entered the Austrian market. We are curious to see the user feedback in Graz. Each new destination brings us joy as we create it with runners in mind. It is our hope that the app helps tourists discover Graz but we would also like to see locals use it and get to know their city better while running”, says Sandra Bortek, SightRun’s co-founder and Chief Marketing Officer.
Since releasing the Graz tour, the team has kept busy and launched an iOS app. The startup is set on keeping the momentum going and is developing new tours for several Croatian cities. The goal is to promote Croatia as a tourist destination in new ways and bring value to traveling runners.
