ProCEEd #3 (May 11—17, 2015)


The past week’s brought quite a few funding stories, of which the $10 million for DocPlanner and $9 million for Pipedrive appear to be the most significant. In addition to that, the gamers among us will rejoice to read about Cossacks 3, the new title announced by GSC Game World.

I’d also recommend to pay attention to the long reads section in the very bottom, for it has a bunch of pieces worth reading. Those include the most recent take on Pavel Durov’s standoff with Russian authorities and several reports from the recent tech events in Estonia, Lithuania, and Macedonia.

Having said this, I’ll leave you to the links and stories below. Have a good week!
