In this episode of ProCEEd > Podcast, I'm joined by two great guests: Karoli Hindriks, the founder and CEO of Jobbatical.com, and Alex Barrera, a co-founder of Tech.eu and Chief WOWness Officer at Press42.com.
We discuss Alex's recent story on the tech scene in the Baltics (http://goo.gl/tN60vf), Jobbatical's recent funding round, and the future of entrepreneurs and startups in Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania.
