Mostar Software City – Software Export

Over the years, SEEBA has collaborated with many software companies in the Balkans, many located in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The IT sector is developing rapidly and many new companies are being established and built around technology universities. Mostar, one of the most well-known cities in the country, examines hundreds of technologists each year. Many IT companies in Herzegovina are export oriented and SEEBA is therefore a natural partner when trying to reach the Scandinavian market.

Mostar Software City is a natural continuation of development in the region, a cluster that brings together all export companies and works for an improvement in the entrepreneurial climate. Several companies have already been connected to it and the idea is to exchange experiences and to respond together to major service offerings from abroad.

We were invited to the launch conference of Mostar Software City and participated in the Export Panel. It was a very rewarding discussion together with representatives from Croatian and Serbian IT clusters.

Conclusion
