By Ivan Brezak Brkan, October 28, 2013

If you didn’t know, Southeastern Europe’s most active seed investors visited a number of cities a few weeks ago and .Me hosted the Podgorica part of the tour entitled: StartTrek StartTrek.me, to be exact! Bulgarian based funds Eleven and LauncHub sent their representatives along with guests, including .Me’s very own Itana Prljević who talked about why domains were really important to tech companies.

The StartTrek tour included several cities and started in Belgrade, followed by Zagreb, Banja Luka, Podgorica and Pristina. Topics of presentations included what was hot in the startup world and how to approach accelerators, which helped the local communities get a better understanding of how startups and the investment community interacted with one another.

 Meet The Three StartTrek .ME Startups

But lets focus on the Podgorica event which took place in .Me’s brand new offices. Out of 5 startups that pitched the investors, 3 were .me’s so lets get to know them a bit more.

Hefit.me is a health and fitness news application that’s based on the simple idea that people want to know more about healthy leaving. The app will provide premium content about fitness and food while relying on a advertising-based business model.

TourVia.me wants to be the ultimate solutions to plan all your travel. It uses aggregated data from various sources, such as Google Places, tourist websites, but also brochures when offline information is needed.

Heroj.me is actually more of a “social good” project than a startup. The team believes that every individiaul can change the world by small contributions. It wants to make ordinary citizens into heroes by letting them report issues that can be recolved by removing bureaucratic obstacles. You will be able to report issues via the Heroj mobile app or website. Others can then vote on how important the issues is and the platform handles the rest. Interestingly, you can create “areas” that matter to you most and watch all the issues that get reported for them – as well as giving support to what you personally deam important.

Pitches in all the cities were very interesting to the participating investor, including initiator Dilyan Dimitrov, one of the cofounders of Eleven. You can find out more about the funds and what they offer startups at the official websites of Eleven and LauncHub.
