Digital Den – Rockers!
Digital Den is a hub from Podgorica, founded by Darko Ivanovic and Nenad Novovic, longtime entrepreneurs who aim to change the current image of Montenegro. They successfully implemented the first program in which startups from Montenegro, Macedonia, Serbia and Bosnia had an inclusive chance to be part of MTSB (Montenegrin Startup Bridge) and to present their ideas in the United States of America. The seriousness of the program is proved by the participation of the American Embassy in Podgorica as a main partner.
Solar Data Collector as succesfull story
Pioneers from Macedonia were the founders of the startup Solar Data Collector who had the opportunity to present their startup in Arizona, Colorado, Maine and New York to investors, vc funds and universities. Participating in the MTSB program brought them many opportunities, potential negotiations and preparations to start a company in the United States through which they would attack the American market.
