Last Thursday and Friday the trip of the Internet Rockstars delegation took place in Ljubljana. We got an incredible amount of attention from the local internet scene and the press – it was even organized around our event as a highlight a whole week of talks and events
Short summary to get the desire for the next trip: On Thursday after arriving at the airport in Ljubljana we exchanged ideas at a lunch and met the first Slovenian entrepreneurs. With a full stomach we visited the Startup House, the companies Gigodesign and 3fs in three groups. At the following company CosyLab we learned, reunited, how the controllers of the largest machines in the world work and that even such companies can study very creatively at other startups. After checking in at the designer hotel Cubo, we met other entrepreneurs from Slovenia in the Isis gallery and listened to lectures from Invest Slovenia, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry and about the culture and economy from the perspective of foreigners in Slovenia. The afterparty at the Daktari Club was not the last stop of the evening for many. The latter pictures were of course deleted. The next morning we gathered in the offices of our branch to get together on the bus to Piran to the sea. Once there, we tasted raw fish and a matching white wine as a hangover breakfast. On the boat to the fish farm boutique Fonda, very close to the Croatian border, we enjoyed the few kilometers of coastline that Slovenia has to offer. As a dignified conclusion, there was also a guided tour and wine tasting in the Winery San Tomas on the hills of Koper. The picture gallery has just been published on our Facebook page:
Next time, the first ideas for the next trip have already been created and we would be happy to have all the internet rock stars with us!
