Rimac speaks of the hardships of such a heavy workload, and how the car industry is an extremely difficult one worldwide.
Rimac cited his middleschool professor Vlainic as a great influence on him, who had traveled all over the world to go to tenders.
As VLM/Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 3rd of October, 2018, Croatian entrepreneur Mate Rimac was a guest of HRT last night, and in response to the question of why he decided to stay in Croatia, he answered with the fact that had he not, most of the 450 employees now employed his factory would not be in Croatia today either.
”When we see this, we simply draw energy from it. Many people have a future there. People from the business world are changing their perceptions of Croatia,” Rimac said.
When commenting on Rimac Automobili’s brand new model, the C_Two, which stole the show and was the star this year when it was first unveiled in Geneva, Rimac said that he actually doesn’t have much time to look at his achievements because the focus is on problems, and he was busy looking at the ”one million challenges to deal with.”
“When I see that car, I see just how much work is waiting for us in order to properly fulfill our obligations, ask me in four or five years, and I’ll answer the question as to whether we succeeded or not,” Rimac added.
Rimac admitted that mistakes had indeed been made but they had learned from those mistakes and that that in itself isn’t something to be ashamed of. He went on to state how even today, his working time is still extreme.
He also made sure to note that work and life in the automotive industry is very difficult all over the world, not just here in Croatia.
