If you are wondering how it's possible to succeed in a time when the world is spinning in the wrong direction, you have come to the right place. Luck and success are for the brave who think outside the box.


Join us for an event that will open the door to the world of entrepreneurship and creativity. In the first part, we will talk to Žiga Vrtačič, a member of the Bird Buddy team who succeeded with the idea of a smart bird feeder, and in the second part, we will draw attention to POPRI - a competition in entrepreneurial ideas of young people.

Žiga is a local from Upper Savinja Valley, who set a Slovenian record on the online platform for mass fundraising - Kickstarter - with the Bird Buddy team.

Before these successful projects, Žiga worked as a product development manager at Outfit7 and as a product manager at Simobil.
