Growing a Digital Business in Eastern Europe

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Eastern Europe is the new digital Wild West - with amazing opportunities. Traditionally most entrepreneurs had to go to the US to make their digital dreams come true - with Phil Libin (Evernote) or Andrej Naborgoj (Talking Tom) among the more prominent examples. Now a new crop of native startups is "making it" internationally - while staying rooted.
In this session some of this new crop of international entrepreneurs and a VC share how they do it, talk about some of the challenges and give advice for startups and digital professionals how to be successful in Eastern Europe.
