Our last Weekly Dose session was a bit different that the previous ones. The guest speaker was Ivica Penic – business trainer, consultant for entrepreneurs, expert in sales and marketing, and mentor in Smart-Up Center at New Man’s.
First, we had the opportunity to be a part of the “Growth Hacking” workshop. Ivica shared his knowledge and personal experience in the field of marketing and he tried teaching us how to use the innovative “Growth hacking” method, by involving our creativity and analytical thinking in order to achieve an increase in sales. After the successful 4-hour workshop, we heard his inspirational story in a very relaxed atmosphere.
With entrepreneurial spirit form an early age, Ivica has a lot of experience in founding successful businesses and managing companies, and his story in Skopje starts around a year and a half ago. Since then, he is a part of New Man’s team as a manager for regional development and the lead mentor in Smart-Up Center, but has also been a mentor on a few important events such as Startup Weekend Skopje and NASA Space Apps Challenge Macedonia. He says that he sees great potential in the Macedonian start-up scene, and that's exactly what motivated him the most to stay here and to take part in creating new successful start-up stories.
Thank you again for being a part of this 4th Weekly Dose session. See you next Wednesday on Weekly Dose of Acceleration s03 e05 with the girls from Skpopje Casual!
