As of the today, WhoAPI is a member of Croatian Independent Software Exporters, CISEx for short. Unfortunately, the english version of the site is still being developed. They have formed the association just 9 months ago, but already they have 90 members!
CISEx is comprised of IT companies, developers, IT experts, engineers and other individuals that strive to export their goods and knowledge. Most of the members are “wannabe exporters” (so I’ve heard from other members) but some are gaining profits strictly from exporting.
Why is this important for WhoAPI?
Since domaining in Croatia is non existent, and I wrote about that issue previously, WhoAPI will focus internationally. This is why we would like to connect with any company in Croatia that resembles our company in any way. Among CISEx members there are some companies that you may have heard of. I have hand picked some under these rules, and please don’t call me a rasist because it took me 45 minutes to hand pick them. I looked for 10 employees and works internationally or has international offices. English oriented web, VC funding and gooood looking website are a plus.

Oh, and one more thing!
WhoAPI is the first CISEx member to come from Rijeka (which I believe is shameful because our hometown is the 3rd largest town in Croatia). So, to help promote export, startups and entrepreneurship; we will organize an event on 24th of February in a city hall on Korzo. There is still more than a month till then, so you can expect more news in detail in the following couple of weeks. But if you are interested in attending or speaking/presenting at the event, please contact WhoAPI.
