A Day with John Biggs

On Friday we had a great honor to host John Biggs, east coast editor of TechCrunch. We had lots of fun with him and his lovely wife Asia. John_and_Asia_on_Bled

I'm pretty sure John was impressed not just with Bled and other natural beauties of Slovenia, but also with enthusiasm of our start-up community.

We made sure that the best representatives of our community such as Jugoslav Petković (ex-Mimovrste), Marko Pirc (Lumu), Matevž Petek (Povio), Darko Butina (ex-Najdi.si, ex-Mimovrste), Matthias Alder (Astina), and others had ample opportunity to present themselves and their work to John.

I'd like to thank John for visiting us and putting some spotlight also on smaller "silicon valleys". We have accomplished a lot already by ourselves but we need all the help we can get to make Boulder of Europe out of Ljubljana. Thanks also to Ana Eterović and the rest of Netokracija team for making TechCrunch Balkan meet-ups such a blast. I'm pretty sure Gašper Grubar, the 16-years old behind E-beat will never forget it :)
