The leading networking event in the region, Business Café – the most popular business gathering of small business owners and those who want to be business owners – was held for the 30th time on Friday in Zagreb, at the restaurant Spoon.
Guest entrepreneurs who shared their entrepreneurial stories were Denis Matijević, co-owner and director of Agrofructus Group, Andrea Šitum, owner and editor of two niche internet portals and a famous writer and host Bruno Šimleša.
This event recorded 190 visitors from a dozen cities of Croatia and neighbouring Bosnia and Herzegovina and Slovenia.
In an interview with Kristina Ercegović, Denis Matijević emphasized that it is always easiest to sit and criticize, but what is needed is to take the initiative and responsibility.
He added that he was personally involved in several businesses, because to him, as a businessman, it’s hard to resist and not take the challenge when he sees an opportunity.
Andrea Šitum shared with the audience her story about her beginnings and how she herself wrote the first 500 articles, ten each day for 50 days in a row, under different aliases so it would seem she hired several journalists, because she couldn’t afford them, and how she arranged delayed payments for all other costs.
She sent a message that the most important thing is TO BE TRUE TO YOURSELF.
In the end, the stage was taken by a famous writer, editor, TV and radio host, Bruno Šimleša.
Bruno is an author of eight books. For the guests of the Business Café he recalled how all publishers outright refused his first book and belittled him, so he decided to publish it on his own. The book sold great and the publishers started contacting him for the other books on their own.
He told the audience: There’s always room for excellent ideas and people. BECOME EXCELLENT! LIVE BIG DREAMS!
