The year 2017 saw a record in the number of acquired investments, almost doubling since the previous year to a whopping 140 million. The majority of the acquired funds is dedicated to new work forces, specifically tech experts, who build technological solutions. This was obvious in the offers for employment, where the tech field was dominating this past year. Another trend is setting up offices abroad, in London, New York, San Francisco ect., while the tech ‘base’ remains in Slovenia. Employers are putting an effort to emphasise a good working environment, competitive payment and extra goodies. The work culture in startups and tech companies is notoriously different from those in established corporate environments. It encourages innovative thinking, offers high quality work environment, a relaxed and open work culture, creative office spaces and professional growth.
