We discuss Alex's recent story on the tech scene in the Baltics (goo.gl/tN60vf), Jobbatical's recent funding round, and the future of entrepreneurs and startups in Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania. Here's a few highlights of the episode: 01:45 Impressions from TechChill Baltics 04:35 It the Baltics part of the ecosystem of CEE or the Nordics? 10:55 Is it hard to get students to run startups in the Baltics?
