Mate Rimac is the protagonist of far one of the country’s most fascinating and indeed inspiring entrepreneurial stories. In a country where ”you can’t do that” continues to reign strong when it comes to business, investments and actually getting ideas off the ground, Rimac’s dogged determination and drive is something to be greatly admired.
The self-proclaimed lover of tech who has rather miraculously managed to make something work in Croatia which would have been deemed impossible before, has attracted the likes of German automotive giant Porsche to Croatia, having them invest eye-watering amounts of money into his company and even giving the Croatian Government a lesson on how to attract the car industry and as such foreign investment.
There seems to be little Mate Rimac can’t turn his hand to and succeed in, and as the brand new Rimac campus and the move to a new space in Jankomir dominates his company’s ”life” at the moment, the new Zagreb Rimac Automobili office opening is yet another item ticked off his long list.
As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, Rimac Automobili has opened a new development office in Zagreb, which already has about 400 employees working there.
The new 4,400-square-metre Zagreb Rimac Automobili office covers two floors and ”houses” experts from a number of different departments working on the development of battery systems, electric drive components, software solutions and autonomous driving systems. The new location on the ground floor is also home to three innovative R&D laboratories.
“This new Zagreb Rimac Automobili office has made it possible to group teams based on the projects they’re currently working on – whether it’s internal Rimac projects or technology we’re developing for other carmakers,” the company’s official Facebook page stated.
