The Croatian Research & Development Grant is a program that has been put in place by the Croatian government to encourage startups to cooperate with scientific institutions in order to accelerate their R&D activities.

Repsly currently boasts 500 customers including recognized brands such as L'Oreal, Nike Golf, KIA Motors, and Phillips, among others.
