The most important thing for Serbia’s image is probably the fact that there have been an unbelievable number of successful start-up projects, creative people, large gaming companies and fintech programs in recent years.
I see the modern Serbia as a progressive, creative society that has embraced and applied the Nemanjić legacy. The Nemanjićs were very progressive for their time. They implemented and lived their creative and inspired, yet spiritually ennobled, ideas.
I also see the modern Serbia as a country that embraced and crowned the Nemanjićs’ ideas with the teachings of Nikola Tesla in the 19th and 20th centuries. What we see today are successes in sport, culture, music and art in general, but also in a new art form represented by the art of creating new values in the digital space. That’s our face.
That’s why I see Serbia as a country that would, by preserving the principles of its ancestors, reconcile and integrate the traditional with the advanced, progressive and new, which would – by preserving its spiritual tradition – respond to the challenges of the present day, when all values are being destroyed, including values of the family, humanity and solidarity.
Our spontaneity and directness, ability to repent, simplicity and unpretentiousness can and must defeat primitivism, corruption, hatred and neglect of our cultural, historical and spiritual heritage
Our spontaneity and directness, coupled with our ability to repent, our simplicity and unpretentiousness, sense of humour, energy and work on ourselves, crowned by top results, can and must defeat primitivism, corruption, hatred and neglect of our cultural, historical and spiritual heritage.
The most important thing for Serbia’s image is probably the fact that there have been an unbelievable number of successful start-up projects, creative people, large gaming companies and fintech programs in recent years. This is no longer incidental, rather we’re talking about dozens if not hundreds of startups that have attracted global companies which are now very relevant on the digital market globally. I’ve spoken with many people who are part of the Serbia Creates platform and the Digital Serbia Initiative – it would seem inexplicable that a single country that has gone through so many difficulties would see the emergence of so many young and creative initiators… If we weren’t aware of the characteristics of our people that enable them to turn a crisis into a strength, a threat into a challenge and a difficulty into an opportunity… Because we had everything other than the ability to solve problems in a stable, comfortable and expected way. Our motto is “manage it yourself”. Resourcefulness actually is creativity, and creativity is today’s most sought-after resource.
