In the dynamic world of technology and innovation, events like the Shift Conference have become essential hubs for thought leaders, startups, and pioneers. This year, the Shift 2023 conference, set against the beautiful backdrop of Zadar, was a melting pot of brilliance and creativity. Amidst this vibrant gathering, we, at Hypefy, are thrilled to announce our standout achievement.

Our AI-powered platform, designed to bridge influencers with small and medium enterprises for launching transformative marketing campaigns, didn’t just resonate with the audience; it secured us the prestigious “Best Pitch Award” in the early-stage category.


Navigating through the intense competition from numerous innovative startups was challenging. But our unique blend of a groundbreaking solution, a captivating pitch, and a clear vision set us apart.

It’s also worth highlighting that our recognition isn’t confined to Shift 2023. We previously made our mark as semifinalists in the Podim Pitching Competition 2022, a testament to our unwavering commitment and passion.
