I never imagined I would spend the weekend like this. When I agreed to participate in the Lean Startup Drill, which was held in the Core Hub in Zagreb, it all seemed very exciting. I would live and work as a startup for 24 hours, instead of just writing about them. On Friday, around 5 pm, I was already exhausted from my job and all I wanted was to go home and cover myself with a blanket and relax. But, the real work was just beginning. Give your idea 24h to survive – that was the name of the event. Easy for the idea, but would I survive?
We can say that Oradian, this year’s Pioneers Challenge winner, is truly an interesting startup, even though its area of expertise is finance [insert obligatory accountant joke here].

Was that a wise decision and what the next step is for Oradian, Julian Oehrlein, one of the cofounders, revealed for Netokracija.
