Happy new year! There are no big milestones or achievements to talk about yet as the job of reporting startup news from the CEE region has just began. The globally-minded startups began to make waves internationally, while the local Internet economies continue growing at varying speed so there is a plenty of material to report, analyze, comment on and sometimes invest in.
Yet so far blogging has not been an easy task, especially since it is not a full time occupation for me (I have other duties). Blogging means that mailbox is under constant strain, and there is never enough time to tell all the stories, to react to every request. I have made a rule not to blog over the weekends, and public holidays, but when the family holidays come in, the pressure to blog is pretty strong, and as it happens, it cuts into it.
Thankfully, as some of our readers have noticed, I have a fellow colleague now, Brendan Maynard. Brendan studied International Relations and obtained a master degree in Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies from Michigan State University, is based in Illinois, and has developed an interest in Eastern Europe through studies and travel. He is getting up to speed on all the startup news in CEE region and will support me in the new year, which will be a tremendous help.
As for the new year resolution, the coverage of the Eastern European startups will certainly continue. We will gently start our blogging activities already this week, while being still on holidays. It will take us another week before we can move on with a full speed reporting new stories about startups from Russia and Eastern Europe though. Stay tuned.
