If I wouldn't be an investor I would be...
an entrepreneur. Or a professional wine and sports enthusiast.

I get annoyed when...
People don't know what's the point of their lives.

You might not believe it, but we...
really are investing in the Western Balkans.

the secotr of mobile and web technologies in the CEE region

I wouldn’t like to work anywhere else because...
this is a great place to live and work with super talented individuals and teams.

The investment plan for the next years is...
We are planning to back a numbef of early stage companies from the Western Balkans and take them to the next level with European and/or US co-investors in the follow-on rounds.

Our business relationship with startups is characterised by...
trust in the first place. And also by a lot of soft components which are related to the personal skills of the founders.

Besides money I offer...
connections in the VC community and in those industries where our other portfolio companies are active.

About working with startups.

In a startup I am looking for...
great individuals that can work together as a team.

focus, product vision and business development skills. One team, one goal.

I was most impressed by...
the number of great technologies which have been developed in the CEE region. And the progress the tech startup ecosystem has made in the last seven years.

I was least impressed by...
a number of people who talk nonsense in the startup community.
