The 1st Agile Serbia Conference was held on April 23rd in Belgrade, as a finishing touch of another successfully organized Agile Month, the series of educational events on agile software development. Although the Conference was organized for the first time, interest in it was enormous – instead of expected 300, there were over 400 participants interested in Agile and startup topics. According to those present, the quality of lectures and well-designed agenda exceeded all expectations. You can read more in the official conference report.
Our Principal, Vuk Djukic, was on stage together with the CEO of drytools, Marko Gacesa. drytools is the first company in our portfolio. Vuk and Marko talked about how to successfully close a 300K investment in Serbia. Vuk stressed the importance of the team saying: ‘We invest in teams – they are the ones that survive the storm’. This certainly relates to the drytools case: the 3 co-founders who have hacked the formula of a great team and have worked together for 8 years.
We are looking forward to the next Agile Serbia Conference.
