3. CEE Champions

CEE champions used their comparative advantage (often a technology/engineering edge or a low cost manufacturing position) and the founders’ passion and dedication to carve out a strong position in the gloace.

There are many CEE companies which started small, dreamt big, and succeeded over time. There is no single path to follow – each company succeeded in its own way; however, there are some common traits and lessons to be learned from their successes.

We have included below a small selection of companies that fit these criteria for the most part.
