As founders of Widnet Solutions, Darko Micskoski and Miroslav Draganov actively participated in the Longest Pitch Marathon with the goal of finding and supporting the most innovative domestic startup ideas.
We strongly believe that by investing in startup ideas, we can support the potential for rapid growth and global success, which can bring great benefits to everyone involved.
We noticed that developed economies are using greater investment in startup ideas as a way out of the economic crisis. In contrast, our country's established system is quite slow in that regard. Therefore, we decided to be the bearers of big changes regardless of all the risk that we may encounter.
Our intellect, knowledge, and skills motivate us to be better than Richard Brunson and the German company. We firmly believe that with extraordinary startup ideas, we can break many more records, barriers, and prejudices. Some people may ask how we invest only in ideas, but for us, the potential for rapid growth and global success is the most important criterion for a venture.
The next step for us and the teams we support is maximum dedication to further developing the ideas and enabling global scaling and implementation in different markets as soon as possible. We are confident that together, we can succeed in realizing the potential of innovative startup ideas and bring great benefits to everyone involved.
In conclusion, investing in startup ideas can be a risky venture, but the potential for rapid growth and global success makes it a worthwhile investment. We actively support and invest in innovative startup ideas to be the bearers of big changes and enable global penetration and accelerated growth, bringing great benefits to everyone involved.
As the founder of Networker, a company that directly deals with the development of startups, I firmly believe in the next generation of Macedonian businesses that can shape the world. It is precisely for this reason that we appeared as an organizer and investor at the Longest pitch marathon event, where investments were made in the business idea phase for the first time.
We continue with the success stories of our Longest Pitch Marathon winners.
We are making history for the extraordinary intellectual Macedonian startup community.
Being an entrepreneur means being creative, persistent, and ready to take risks, while never letting your fears limit you from achieving what you want. Clapsify, a young team of talents who managed to secure an investment of 25,000 euros at this year's Longest Pitch Marathon, is proof of possessing all these characteristics.
How many young people haven't dreamed of being successful and achieving most of their goals at a young age? And how many adults have looked back and wondered why a certain event didn't happen differently, or why they made the wrong decision about this or that?
Are there chances for prosperity in Macedonia for every young person who sees their future here, instead of outside it? Of course, yes. The only thing they have to do is take advantage of the open opportunities offered to them.
As a banker and private investor, I have always sought out companies and businesses that share my values of creating a better and sustainable future for everyone. Over five years ago, I began investing in the 10 best Macedonian companies, which allowed me to feel the satisfaction of impacting someone's business idea.
As founders and chief executive directors of the Business Accelerator UKIM, we continuously strive to support the most promising technology entrepreneurs, startups, spin-offs, and fast-growing companies through early-stage investments and tailored mentoring for product and technology development.
As the first fintech company established with domestic capital, we at SN Finance know the value of early-stage financing for startups. It's important to invest in the growth of young people and their ideas to build a better future together. This is something that we take to heart, and we want to make a contribution to our community.
If you think you have a great business idea, you already have an advantage over your competition. The most successful entrepreneurs are those who firmly believe in their idea from the very beginning, relying solely on their knowledge and skills.
