Much anticipated Spark.Me conference which is taking place in Splendid hotel, Montenegro was opened by Natasa Djukanovic from Domain.Me who welcomed everybody to the venue. Over 200 people from all around the Balkans showed up to listed to a number of foreign speakers – leaders and entrepreneurs from world’s most popular startups such as About.Me, Skype, etc.

First up was Dr. Eli Opper, Chairman and Strategic Advisor of Technion Club 100 from Israel who pointed out that social needs and economic opportunities are often neglected these days. This leeds to a huge number of fresh ideas that are just waiting to be brought to life.

This is the silver lining young entrepreneurs are searching for, but sadly, a lot of them fail.

Opper also added out that the government support is crucial and that is has to be the backbone of successful startup ecosystem. Just take a look at what Israel did – their startup community is often being used as a good example of what a country can do for young entrepreneurs. Over one million well educated jewish Russians fled from former Soviet Union to Israel during the 90’s as the conditions were far better than those back home – if you don’t have talent, attract it!
