150sec.com is the first community-focused website in English, featuring startup, tech & business news from Central and Eastern Europe.

From the Baltics to the Balkans, and everywhere in-between, our team is constantly on the lookout for amazing stories coming out of the region.

Founded by Adrian Pica, and Agata Kukwa back in 2014, 150sec became part of the ESPACIO media incubator in 2017. Despite our change in leadership, our mission stays the same: to give CEE, and the amazing innovators and community builders which call it home, the attention they deserve on the global stage.
