Doing what you want, having fun, and making money while doing so is what entrepreneurship can offer you. In the recent times, more students have started to realize this - are you among them? Join us. 
In this interesting afternoon, you will get to know entrepreneurship first handily. Through a fun game, you will find your entrepreneurial skills and get to know the typical processes that happen when you lead an idea to execution - the best 3 teams will get a reward.

After realizing that the Slovenian civil engineering market is extremely nontransparent and unorganized, he and Gregor Černelč founded a startup called MojMojster. The main problem they are solving is finding quality contractors for engineering projects. In 2014 and 2016, he founded and a Croatian and Austrian version of the service.

Who is Kristjan Košič?

Father. Cyclist. Researcher and entrepreneur. After finishing his studies at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (FERI), he got a job at Petrol - a company working in the field of energetics - where he was in charge of big ICT projects. He continued his career as an assistant at FERI. While working at the faculty, he still stayed in touch with the economy, applying his scientific and research work to practice. He gave his heart to the ADORA startup, for which he says he has a mission, a vision and a team that will bring the "surgical assistant" into every hospital and help save lives.  The surgical assistant is a typical example of a product that needs a good story because of a very specific market and understanding the product itself. We'll ask Kristjan how they tackled the story and placed the product into it, and what the first market reactions were.
