Croatian startup community is pretty active. It includes CRANE Angel Network, Zagreb Entrepreneurship Incubator (ZIP) and of course the country’s blog Netokracija. More importantly these are people behind the Croatian startup ecosystem: Ivo Spigel (co-founder ZIP, editor Kernel, Forbes Croatia), Berislav Lopac (CRANE). Mihovil Barancic (CRANE, investor), Sasa Cvetojevic (CRANE, investor) and the man behind Netocracija and Netocratic blogs Ivan Brezak Brkan.
