Starting a blog

I've started this blog because I was fortunate to be involved with one of the most exciting startup projects in the past decade - Zemanta. I took the startup through a whole early stage life cycle. Founding, pitching, fundraising, developing partnerships and establishing it as brand and business.

The twist behind the story is that the company was founded in Slovenia, with a team of startup virgins, in an environment that hasn't seen foreign investors and without any connections in our target markets. We took it from an initial idea to the a fully operational business with offices in US, and very strong market presence.

I would like to share my experiences of being a CEO of a European startup. I think European startups need more confidence and use their background as advantage, and not just mimic their US counterparts.
