As always, this was  a greatopportunity to embrace the Belgrade Gets Digital vision, connect with like-minded digital nomads, and engage with startup owners.

One of the highlights was a panel titled 'Why Serbia is a Good Place for Setting Up a Business,' with Blanka Šupe (Haos Community Space), Andrei Popov (Paysend), Leonard Delannoi (Tyllo), and the facilitator, Srividya Kalyanaraman.

Facing Challenges:

Starting a business in a new place might seem tough, but the key is to adapt. Serbia's high quality of life and unique culture make it an exciting journey.
