Thank you for your invitation! It was a pleasure and an honour to participate in your 2nd Business Café International!
I enjoyed the evening, hearing new success stories and experiences, mingling with nice business people and enjoying the best view in Zagreb!
Thank you for your present and your kindness! We’ll surely attend as many BCI as possible and recommend others to attend as well!
Thank you so much for having me at Business Café. It was a great experience, one that I will cherrish. You asked me what you can do to help entrepreneurs in Croatia. The fact that you ask this question is amazing by itself. It is great to see that you made it your business to help other entrepreneurs by offering Business Café as a platform where people go – to get inspired, to learn, to network and to share experiences. If you are an entrepreneur that is looking for inspiration or you would want to start your own business and want to learn from other entrepreneurs – then check out when Kristina plans her following Business Café events, block your calendar and don’t miss out.
It was an absolute pleasure to be a guest speaker for the 2nd Business Cafe International, the atmosphere Kristina and her team created was really inviting and warm, it felt more like friends gathering to share their experiences in the complicated, yet full of opportunities, Croatian business field.
The event was also amazing for networking, we got to connect with like-minded people, both expats like us, but also locals – and this opened a window to possible future projects. Looking forward to the next Business Cafe International events!
When you are foreigner you always struggle with some kind of loneliness, you know you always to some point miss your family, friends, old habits. When you are foreign businessman in Croatia you feel double loneliness since every day you struggle with so many administrative barriers, obstacles, anti entrepreneurship approach. And there comes sunshine and Business cafe, you come here listen to other foreign entrepreneurship and realize you are not lonely at all, there are many of people struggling with exact same problems. This is what happened to me, after participating first in regular BF and then in International one I met wonderful people, motivating stories and a bunch of support and good feeling. If you feel lonely and overwhelmed join Business cafe,and feel the power of networking and supporting.
The first Business Café Slovenia was held last night. Beautiful people, beautiful energy, inspirational stories which motivate every entrepreneur to be even better at his/her work, they motivate those who are afraid to jump – to do exactly that, and that they need to move away from the fear of failure because it is only a part of our beliefs. Thank you Kristina Ercegović, Silvija Podoljak, and Marijana Bošnjak on this beautiful event, and thank you – all people who made this event truly amazing. Thank you beautiful people!
Through Business Café we managed reaching new clients with our EVA Water Clinic, and even importantly we reached key business partners with which we have a beautiful business and human cooperation. In addition, with every edition this gathering of small and medium entrepreneurs is so inspiring and motivational, because sometimes you simply forget that you are not alone in all this Croatian maze and entrepreneurship, for which you must have courage – but also a dosage of craziness. Without Business Café, a lot of things would be missing.
Poslovni savjetnik (Business Counselor), as a leading business monthly magazine and the innovator in many initiatives has recognized the value of Business Café from its beginning, and has offered a full media support, just like regular prizes for attendees in form of annual subscriptions for some editions. And we were right. Those gatherings in cozy atmosphere, excellent organization, have shown to be very useful and inspirational, having also a feeling of support and cognition that we, small entrepreneurs, are not alone and are not left in our own hands. We always have “Poslovni savjetnik” and Business Café to watch our backs.
The turn-over in our business has happened when I came across a magazine with Kristina Ercegović’s article about networking. The article was about new technologies, the use of business social networks and the importance of networking. I knew that it was exactly what I needed, that there were new clients over there somewhere. I had the opportunity to introduce myself and my business, and meet other women and male entrepreneurs. I got new insights and experiences that linked me to people, and we’ve increased the number of clients for more than fifty percent in a year and a half. We are proud Business Café sponsors. People who believe in Business Café will most likely trust every sponsor Kristina trusts.
Business Café is a great place for all small businesses, not just an event, it is also a place where a lot of concrete partnerships are arranged. At Business Café I met one of the business founders I invested in. A great story to recommend. See you there.
