In this episode, we talk with Hermes Arriaga, the founder of ImpactHub, coworking space, with whom we met in Zagreb, Croatia.
As a native Mexican that has been very much involved in his local startup ecosystem, Hermes shares his insights on the Mexican and Croatian startup ecosystems. He also discusses the cultural differences that foreigners face in Croatia and the present entrepreneurial mindset of the local community. Everything comes in the form of his own experience, so you will get a more authentic trip between two different yet goal-oriented ecosystems!
