Being part of a startup is a unique experience that can, not only lead to business success, but also help develop invaluable skills.

Jan Cifra, Head of business development at Pianomedia, a successful Slovakian startup that enables publishers to monetise their web content without cutting into existing ad revenue, encourages others to not let fear stop them, to take the plunge and live the startup adventure: “Being part of a startup develops a positive attitude and get-things-done approach. You learn skills like improvising, negotiation, building a network and many more that are highly transferable to any other job.
