Chicago, IL, May 01, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- On May 1, Startup Port will welcome 2 U.S. Department of State sponsored Professional Fellows via WorldChicago's Tech Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Education Program. Startup Port will host both a Business Development & Informatics Consultant from Croatia and a Senior Project Specialist from Sarajevo, Bosnia & Herzegovina.
Each Fellow has extensive professional experience in their respective fields and is actively involved with developing the technology ecosystems where they work and live. During their month long work-stay, the Fellows will learn about Chicago's technology ecosystem and contribute to Startup Port's execution on business tactics that yield sustained traction for seed stage operations.
"We are excited to have WorldChicago's Professional Fellows come on board," says Hal Tezcan. "Each Fellow brings a specific set of skills that can be utilized as a complement to our unique approach to venture development. We look forward to working alongside both Fellows in an effort to continue helping our startups execute on establishing cross-border partnerships and generating traction through strategic collaboration."
Startup Port (www.startup-port.com) has been catalyzing innovation in Chicago and the Midwest since 2008. With strong business connections to Central Asia and the Middle East, the venture development company stands to further benefit from diversifying its exposure to the technology ecosystems of the Balkans Region.
