In 2006, The Young Transatlantic Innovation Leaders Initiative (YTILI) launched their Entrepreneurial Fellowship Program, a partnership with the U.S. Department of State and supported by the German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF).
YTILI empowers young European entrepreneurs and innovators to grow their enterprises. Our VP of Business Development, Slađana Mlađenović (who is from Slovenia), was one of the few selected to join the September cohort and travel to Austin, Texas.
For two weeks Sladana was stationed at Austin's Capital Factory. There she worked on improving our marketing/business strategy, growing our network of supporters, searching for new partnership opportunities, and met with a ton of experienced mentors getting valuable feedback. The general reaction was "WOW, what your company is working on is AMAZING!".
This was a great experience for us. We love Austin! Thank you YTILI! Now it’s time to get back to work and implement what we learned :)
