What the hell?! No, it’s not finished. Not nearly. There are still bugs to fix and posts to write but here you have Netocratic, a blog that’s going to cover startups and web business primarily from Southeastern Europe but across all of Central and Eastern Europe as well when possible.
If you’re not familiar with Netokracija, it’s a blog started in 2009. that has grown into the biggest source of web business and startup news in the region. Its readers include web professionals, journalists, entrepreneurs, developers and lots of geeks from Croatia, Serbia, Slovenia, Bosnia and other countries of Southeastern Europe. Local mainstream media like Jutarnji list or B92 regularly source stories from Netokracija.
Netokracija has broken stories on hundreds of startups such as the biggest group shopping website in the region Kolektiva, Skype alternative Vox.io as well as projects such as T-Mobile’s mobile apps. We’re regular partners and official bloggers of conferences such as LeWeb, The Next Web, Microsoft WinDays and the Share conference.
Why You Should Read Netocratic
While I’m a local correspondent for Techcrunch Europe, lots of stories just aren’t right for it. A startup might be too small or a project might not have anything to do with startups. Innovative internet campaigns? Mobile apps? Local investments into startups? They will find their place on Netocratic.
The coverage will not be identical to articles on Netokracija so you should probably follow both to get all the information. You might be an investor looking for an interesting startup, someone working in business development looking for partnering companies, an advertiser looking for some inspiration or just a geek that loves tech. We’re starting slowly so subscribe to the feed, follow us on Twitter, become a fan on Facebook and stay informed. It’s just Netocratic, right? 🙂
