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.
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.
Attending Product Management Festival 2017 (PMF 2017) in Zurich, Switzerland, and meeting amazing product professionals inspired me to go deeper into six important areas that are often neglected or entirely overlooked by product leaders.
At their 10th anniversary, the Slovenian high-tech company Zemanta d.o.o. announced that it was entirely acquired by Outbrain from the US, the world’s largest premium content discovery platform. The sum that Outbrain paid for Zemanta’s technology, products and team remains a business secret, and Zemanta’s co-founders Andraž Tori and Boštjan Špetič will join Outbrain. After becoming part of Outbrain Zemanta’s platform will continue to operate as a standalone product.
