As the year is turning to an end, we’d like to take a moment to wish all our readers a very happy and relaxing holiday season. We have had an awesome year here and we’re glad that so many of you have enjoyed the ride with us. To be exact there are more than 50 000 of you who keep coming back each month. That’s a lot when we work hard to stay away from any click optimized, SEO focused content. We’re of course very happy about this, but it’s more awesome for all the startups in the region – they’ve got the world’s attention.

Each year we’ve endorsed lending of micro funds to entrepreneurs in need through Kiva.org and our team there. It’s a great way to support welfare and helping rid of poverty. You can get started with as little as $25 and help people enjoy their holiday season perhaps next year in a completely different way.

We’ll be back on Tuesday 27th, but until then – take care of yourselves, your loved ones and have an enjoyable holiday season, what every festivity you may celebrate.
