Kosovo Pt2: Digital entrepreneurs could solve Kosovo's recognition crisis

By Clea Broadhurst

This means people in Kosovo can have difficulty travelling in Europe for business.

But young entrepreneurs in Kosovo are getting around this, in part, by concentrating on digital startups, as Clea Broadhurst found out while in the capital Pristina, in this second report of a five part series.
