  14. I was asked to visit an innovative mushroom farm on the outskirts of Belgrade a couple of weeks ago for a Financial Times magazine story that was published this week: Start-ups in Central and Eastern Europe are Finding Help from New Initiatives. I met the incredible entrepreneur and microbiologist Ivanka Milenkovic and had some time to wander around her facility, where I found some of the prettiest oyster mushrooms I’ve ever seen. Read the article (free sign up might be required) to learn more about her process and her products.
