Serbian Novi Magazin Features Alum Lazar Stojković (MIMS ’14)

This week’s cover article of the Serbian weekly Novi Magazin (“New Magazine”) features an interview with Berkeley I School alumnus Lazar Stojković (MIMS ’14).

A Serbian native, Stojković is currently the chief product designer for a stealth-stage startup in San Francisco as well as a mentor for Belgrade’s ICT Hub, where he is building bridges between his home country and Silicon Valley. Before attending the School of Information, Stojković co-founded and led Wannabe Magazine, Southeast Europe’s most popular fashion & lifestyle website and the people’s choice for the Best Website in Serbia, according to 2012’s PC Press. He was also the co-founder and CEO of Touché Solutions, a hardware startup in Belgrade. Novi Magazin is a major Serbian weekly focused on business and social topics.

In the five-page article, Stojković discusses:

  • New tech trends, including the increasing prominence of Bitcoin;
  • Development of a startup ecosystem in Serbia;
  • Root causes of Southeast Europe’s brain drain and potential solutions to the problem;
  • Why he brought 500 Startups to ICT Hub in Belgrade, where they ended up investing in the local company TruckTrack;
  • What Serbia can learn from the U.S. about commercializing new technologies and creating a better business environment;
  • and more.
