Office Hours

Even though the offical Althemy headquarters are located in Sofia, Bulgaria, unofficially our team spends their working hours in one cute little office at the Roof in Belgrade.

 

Eleven demo day

jagi-althemy-eleven-demo-day-2014

Holy Hell this was exciting and fun time! We returned to Sofia to participate in a largest yet Demo Day event Eleven organized so far. Joined by our Eleven Alumni brothers and sisters in arms, we pitched, and talked and partied from early morning until...    well...  early morning :)

 

In 2 Eleven

Althemy (CyberCity) joined Eleven in a 7th batch of startups that Eleven invested in and the program lasted from the 1st September to the beginning of December.

 

Eleven selection days



Probably the most coveted and enticing moment of 2014 for Cybercity - Althemy crew. After almost a year of work and studying and pitching and crushed egos and a lack of sleep, we made it to Sofia, Bulgaria to join the Selection Days of Eleven Venture Fund.

 

Archery team building



In ancient India, while training young warriors in the art of archery, their military teacher asked them to aim at a tree, find a bird in it, and focus on the birds eye before firing an arrow

 

Spark.me 2014



Mini -Seedcamp event in Belgrade was also marked by one meaningful and more than a pleasant introduction – to Natasa Djukanovic , a Director International  Sales of Domain.Me . It will suffice to say that it was a beginning of one beautiful friendship. Natasa was immediately attracted to the concept of Althemy (Cyber City) and invited us to participate in the Startup Competition at the Spark.me conference.

 

Althemy - CyberCity @ Startit Fest, Belgrade



After 8 months of hard work, the day arrived for Althemy - CyberCity to present itself in our second official big event pitch (after Mini Seedcamp Belgrade)– and what better place for this but SEE ICT's Startit Fest – Largest startup festival in South-East Europe.
Five days of startup mayhem, all over the city of Belgrade ensued between May 15th and May 19th. The agenda was packed to the brim and covered a range of different workshops, lectures and meetups.

 

Graduation Day



You're never too old to learn, and you are certainly never too old to graduate - and feel Super Happy about it. On 18th of May 2014, our team officially graduated in the class of 2013/2014 of StartUp Academy.

 

Mini Seedcamp event in Belgrade

Seedcamp held its Mini Seedcamp event in Belgrade on May the 18th. We applied with CyberCity via Angel list, but weren’t admitted to the narrow selection. Still, thanks to the personal recommendation from Vukasin Stojkov, founder of TruckTrack, we were given a chance to present our project. Firstly in front of Carlos Eduardo Espinal, who has himself lead pitch preparations with the selected teams, and then on the Event itself.

 

Pitch preparations

Working on Althemy - CyberCity presentation was a challenge for itself and something that definitely deserves a separate blog post. In our first month at Startup Academy, we started with some idea about how CyberCity pitch should look like, but in reality, it was terrible. We knew that our startup was complex, but it was fascinating how we kept failing to explain it properly to our audience.
