    Meet The Winner Of PragueCrunch III: Cloudfender

    This man is very happy. He’s Tomas Soukup, one of the contestants in last night’s PragueCrunch pitch-off and a proud drinker of fine Czech beer. He is just one of the cool people we met in Prague last night.

  • PragueCrunch Round-Up: Checking In With The Czechs

The organizer of the event, dubbed PragueCrunch, was Jack DeNeut from Nelso, an American who has been living there for the past 16 years and is extremely well connected with the local community. When we weren’t enjoying the great weather on… Read More
