In the future they also plan to integrate stereoscopic VR technologies like Oculus Rift or similar into their […]

An interesting visit in Bridge85

An interesting visit in Bridge85

We had an interesting visit in our coworking space in the last two days. Marko Hrelja came from Canada to Solkan to visit his relatives, and during this time, he came to work in Bridge85. He is a cofounder and CEO of a startup 10XCROWDS, the Google analytics for pedestrians. In fact, they follow customers of a certain store and collect data on how they move, what they observe and how they behave. Based on the collected data they advise on how to optimize the placement and infrastructure in the store, which is reflected in 20% higher revenue on average. […]

Hello summer and post-Jelly events

It is finally here. The summer!

After the Jelly event, we had some changes – some of our Bridge85 builders got new business opportunities and moved out, but we also got a new member, that will be included in our webpage soon.

The story about Bridge85 was also featured in local newspaper.

At the event, two very successful vloggers from Goriška visited us – AnjaSuska and Marija Zmosta. We were featured in Marija Zmosta’s vlog in this cool video. In the week of Jelly, she also started her own business  – FulDoro, animation for children’s parties. We wish her all the best on her entrepreneurship path!

Presenting OLLO

Presenting OLLO

We are proud to present a new member, this time from the startup world. With us is a new startup OLLO that is developing a system for some serious music mixing. It is a system for mixing music on headphones that replaces the need for home studio and other expensive equipment. Granted, you can definitely use it in coworking places or offices, we can vouch for that.

Check them at their web page OLLO.

About the name Bridge85

So why Bridge85? Goriška region is well known for Solkan Bridge over the beautiful Soča River (Italian Isonzo). The bridge with an arch span of 85 metres is the longest stone bridge among train bridges in the world. And just like our bridge, a coworking space is building a connection among people, whether it’s for business or for personal intentions. What makes the difference between a coworking space and a shared office? The most important element is definitely building a strong community of active individuals, entrepreneurs, freelancers and startup mentors, with whom you can connect, exchange experiences, and maybe even […]
