My professional background is primarily as an IT engineer, entrepreneur and consultant, with experience in starting up and developing Internet and tech businesses, product development, ICT services, startup coaching and matching finance and support with innovation.
In 2005 I founded Akota ING, a software services company with focus on software R&D and product development. In 2009 I spun-off Internet Trgovija, a regional e-commerce platform provider that provides online payment processing, aggregation marketplaces and business e-commerce SaaS.
In 2011 I founded the Balkan Unlimited Foundation, which is a regional supporter of innovative entrepreneurship in the Balkans. It advances this mission by organizing the biannual Balkan Venture Forum, numerous startup coaching programs, mapping and matching financing with fast growing innovative businesses.
