More about forum


  • Innovation is the motor of progress in each of us as individuals, in companies, in the country and in our society. If the wheel of constant change stops turning, we stand still. Every small child racing on his or her bike, knows that. Tone Stanovnik, Spica International
  • It is very important that we recognize and support those innovations, which have a positive impact on society. Slovenia has a special privilege in its smallness, we can potentially implement change very quickly. Luka Stepan, Gigodesign
  • When you breathe life in plastics, you live the vision of innovations for the future. We live these innovations. Tanja Skaza, Plastika Skaza
  • I see innovations as one of the possible models for future industry breakthroughs, but it needs to be fully upgraded. Innovations can be a key asset, if the users as well as industry come to understand their value. We need to understand that there is no progress without innovations. Matej Fegus, Donar
  • A successful company must encourage innovative thinking among the employees in all fields not just in the traditionally technical. But naturally innovations cannot be delivered on command, we need to foster an environment which supports such thinking. An environment based on respect, a sense of belonging and room for mistakes. This way common goals become more accessible, regardless of how ambitious and daring they are. Andrej Božič, Steklarna Hrastnik
  • As winners of the special award for the most innovative business model at the 8th Slovenian Innovation Forum, we entered into a group of highly innovative enterprises in Slovenia. With this award GoOpti was presented to the wider public, thus we increased the visibility of GoOpti brand and its services. We got the confirmation that we are on the right track, and the motvation for further growth and improvement of GoOpti products. Slovenian Innovation Forum opens up new opportunities for networking, contacts with experts in different fields and thus new knowledge about modern technologies.
