21th century bursts with electronic devices offering solutions for our various needs and desires. Therefore it is quite incomprehensible that motorcyclists still have to manually cancel turn signals, resulting in a stronger chance for an accident. The Slovenian start-up ABCS sistem decided to solve this problem.
PREGNANCY AND TECHNOLOGY
More and more couples who would like to have children, soon give up after a couple of unsuccessful attempts or resort to unnecessary medical interventions. A solution is being offered by the creators of Baby-Stork App that helps a woman listen to her body and get pregnant in a completely natural way.
Croatian Memoangel in Xiamen
When we were invited last year to Collision conference in Las Vegas with our project MemoAngel, we were at the same time invited to the qualifications for the final event of Echelon Asia in Singapore which gathered various projects with the potential on the Asian market. Even though we couldn’t participate on Echelon, due to other commitments, we stayed in touch with the organizers (company e27 from Singapore) for potential cooperation in the future. Thus, in the end of February, this time we have received an invitation to participate on Asia Beat 2016 held in Xiamen, a town located on the southeast coast of China, across Taiwan.
STARTUPS AND BRANDING
sMind is leading e-commerce event in Slovenia organized by Ceneje, leading price comparison site in the region. This year, it will be held on November 24th at Ljubljana Castle. We’ve had a chat with one of the main keynote speakers, Maurits Bruggink.
You’ve probably heard about Bellabeat, FlyKly, or Layer? Well, three years ago they didn’t exist! Now they are at the top of their industries, but how did they do it? Was it enough only to have the right idea or did they also need to have knowledge to conduct business in today’s competitive environment? Specifically, what kind of knowledge do startups need to succeed and not repeat the many mistakes of the 90% of startups that fail?
To a former developer and currently a successful entrepreneur, WebCamp is an ideal conference due to its combination of advanced IT lectures mixed with non-tech ones. Any person communicating with another person in his life could’ve found a certain value in “Why should you talk” talk presented by a German developer and author (of programming books, of course), Christian Grobmeier.
5 pieces of advice for startups
Several of Croatian startup projects had the opportunity to participate at the Collision Conference in Las Vegas at the beginning of this month. These projects include MemoAngel (web and mobile app for preserving memories of loved ones who passed away), Buzzz (app for a more comfortable life of parents and their kids of kindergarten age) Liana (app for efficient connecting with persons who are travelling or living abroad) and Vyooit (business applications for the live Point of View video streaming technology). This post is about our time in Las Vegas and the things we have learned.
