Biagio Carrano

I am the director of Eastcom Consulting ( from Belgrade, a consulting company which specializes in internationalization and digitization, which I founded in 2008. Since then, I have led the complete development of new foreign investments in Serbia, successfully designed and implemented digital publishing projects, and, together with entrepreneurs, turned their projects into profitable reality. I have launched Serbian Monitor in 2013 to offer to investors and entrepreneurs as well as scholars and curious readers a daily updated and unbiased view about economy, politics and social and cultural life in Republic of Serbia.

I have also been a coach for 15 years and a columnist for various newspapers, Italian and international, writing about topics like digital transformation, transition economies and cognitive capitalism. In my blog L’Immateriale ( I investigate the impact of digital trasformation on companies and society but you can find also my reviews of the books I read and narrative writings.

Eastcom offers expertise and tailor made solutions to suit the different needs of each client. We help entrepreneurs who intend to do business in Southeast Europe (SEE), or companies that already operate here to utilize the opportunities and competitive advantages offered by the SEE countries. Furthermore, we develop communication projects and international marketing with a very clear idea that digital is not simply an extension, but the same cognitive and competitive environment in which both people and businesses must be able to move.

I have a very diverse experience which includes working as a client service director at a press clipping agency, an assistant general manager at a regional economic research facility and a foreign trade manager at a pharmaceutical wholesale company. I am curious, sufficiently creative, and reliable with an allegedly good sense of humour. Last but not least, I am the mother of a rambunctious 8-year-old boy and enjoy yoga and reading in my free time.
