A summary for the founders and managers of our companies, here on the web in a slightly censored version. New Forbes and the web, business results, and where to get a great cup of coffee.
Subscribers received their new issue of Forbes today, and tomorrow it will grace newsstands. If the faces on the cover look familiar, it’s no coincidence. The new issue has a feature that maps Miton’s history.
Thanks to Forbes, we’ve had to speed up the launch of our new website. A small task for builders of online businesses, you might think, but the amount of work it’s taken …
As always, a little review of events. First, a big thanks to everyone who came to the founders’ dinner in March – photos on view here. The next opportunity to meet will be on Wednesday, 17 April, when we will host Filip Brýdl in our “company builders” series. If you would like to join but are not in one of our companies, write to me. We might squeeze you in.
Not everyone likes to share their figures, but business results are a much-appreciated media topic. The latest to publicise their numbers was IdealniNajemce.cz with gross earnings of more than 100 million Czech crowns (4 million Euro). Great work all around.
Competitions don’t win new business, but they sure can help. Several of our companies were recognised in the Zonky Innovation Awards: Rohlik.cz, UlovDomov/IdealniNajemce.cz and Twisto. And Kamil Demuth, the founder of Scuk.cz, won the third prize in the Czech Startupper of the Year award (part of the global Startupper of the Year by Total).

Where to get a great coffee
Because most people didn’t know the cafe/bakery Alfabet, where we held our founders’ dinner in March, I’m adding a few tips for similar trendy/hipsta cafes. All but the last are in Prague. If you haven’t visited at least three of them, you’re out of the running!
Můj šálek kávy (Karlín)
Místo (Dejvice, the same owners)
EMA espresso bar (Florenc)
Café Lounge (they also have really good food, Újezd)
Café Jen (Vršovice)
Coffee Room (Vinohrady)
Super Tramp Coffee (near Národní)
Na stojáka pak Onesip Coffee (behind Lokál in Dlouhá), Kafe Karlín, Sólista (Letná) and Kafemat (Dejvice)
And of course Brno’s Industra
