eKapija: Since its foundation in 2010, InterVenture has been operating in Serbia as well. What were the reasons for opening an office in the country?
– Belgrade is shaping up to become the tech hub of Southeast Europe due to the large local talent pool. We witness this development on an everyday basis. There are already many communities of tech conferences and knowledge events in the domain. Enthusiasm in the region is just perfect and some even call it “the second Berlin”.
As a result, many engineers also from the region (Croatia, Bosnia, Slovenia, Macedonia...) are attracted and move to Belgrade as there are all the advantages of a modern city- good infrastructure, experienced and skilled professionals, young people with good education offer, a very interesting and positive spirit and last, but not least, very nice weather conditions.eKapija: How satisfied are you with the results you have achieved?
– We are a dynamic company and we are on a stable success path since our establishment. We started with only few partners and projects. At this point, we have cooperation with 12 different partners which are market leaders in their product and software solutions.
The base of our success is ultimately grounded on our people. Our team consists of experienced engineers which decided to join us recognizing the outstanding career advantages born out of the direct collaboration with our partners.
Our people and teams are our biggest achievement, that we are very proud about- market success is just a nice side-effect.
