After more than 12 years of business experience in various industries from FMCG, financial services, tax and business consulting industry I have decided to start my own project Pullus Consulting. Pullus Consulting's mission is to provide support to entrepreneurs, project owners and shareholder with focus on early stage tech and innovation startups. By building an intensive network of strategic partners worldwide we want to establish our self as an one-stop-shop for early stage projects.
As a leader I’m focused on people which are the biggest asset of every business together with building quality and long term relationships with clients, partners and suppliers because my philosophy is that you can have successful long term business only within satisfy environment.
One of the first start-up projects that I was involved in was a mobile app called Sportie, special social network for athletes and sportsmen (www.sportie.co). With Sportie we want to provide equal opportunity to all athletes so they can show their talent to the world and professional scouts. Easier way to explain Sportie is that we want to build Linkedin for sports. Project was on standby for some time and it's reactivated from 2017.
Other project that I'm really proud of is implementation of Ushop Tax Free service in Croatia. My team and me are currently focused on setting up automatic process for Tax Free Shopping in Croatia because we want to bring the industry into 21st century.
