Czech Startup Founders Turn Billionaires Without VC Help

    Czech or Russian? Such a fail...

    1. 1

      I thought Jet Brains was always a Czech startup by Czech student? I have used their NetBeans IDE and it was quite good back then.

        Netbeans != IntelliJ IDEA

        Jet Brains is technically a Czech company, but started and operated by Russians, so it's a bit weird to say it's Czech (for me as a Czech at least).

          Ah, okay. I forget who is who then! If the company is HQ'ed in Czech, wouldn't it be a Czech company for all its worth?

          1. 1

            Yes, as I say it technically is. I just always had it in my headspace as Russian. Cannot help it ;)

            I think the title has double meaning.

            I understood it first as "Czech Founders".
