November 14, 2019 – The second Adria Business Network event was held at the Algebra LAB in Zagreb, organized by entrepreneurs Željka Barišić and Kristina Krstinić. The event is aimed at business networking in Croatia and the region, creating business opportunities and encouraging continuing education. Through the event, everyone is offered the chance to find new clients and enter into lucrative deals.
Guest lecturer Damir Bicanic, head of Funderbeam SEE, pointed out what is needed to receive an investment through the Funderbeam platform, how many investors are currently within the platform, and what projects have been invested in since January 2017 when the platform came to Croatia.
Adnan Mehmedovic Medo, CEO/Director of Marketing, PR & Business Development of Fresh Island Festival/RNB Confusion, also guest speaker at the event, briefed the attendees on what is needed in a presentation to make investors invest €700,000 and shared information on events and festivals with global potential coming to Croatia next year.
“An extremely inspiring evening in which, thanks to our guest lecturers, we learned the details of doing business through Fuderbeam, as well as the novelties of the entertainment industry coming to Croatia in 2020. With each new event, we strive to provide current participants with up-to-date information and developments in the business world, and this is our imperative,” said Željka Barišić, an entrepreneur and one of the founders of Adria Business Network.
Kristina Krstinić, also an entrepreneur and founder of Adria Business Network, had the following opinion about the event: “With the arrival of Fundrbeam in Croatia, as an innovative global company financing platform, not only is capital easier for innovative domestic companies, but the overall procedure is easier for potential investors. As a business consultant, I have had the opportunity to work with several successful innovative companies in Croatia, and I believe that such platforms are not only welcome but also indispensable, as they encourage the development of products with significant added value, and thus contribute to the global growth of innovations, which are very important in to today’s world.”
The new face of the event was Joseph Novosel, aka DearLeaderJoe: “I come to the event and find out that people are getting hundreds of thousands of euros in investments through the Funderbeam platform. I tore up my party membership card and knocked on Funderbeam’s door. Thank you to the organizers for connecting us.”
Fashion brand Bonamie dressed the presenter and the event organizers for the evening, while hair was attributed to Ruža Salon, a symbol for quality and beauty.
