CEO
While leading the company for distribution of foreign brands I also started my own start-up project. In the first phase, I made a deep market research, then I was responsible for product development, procurement of raw materials and logistics, brand development as well as development of sales and marketing strategy. I was looking for potential foreign investors and investors in Slovenia and I was also developing the business model. I invented a new method of consuming tea that was named Roispresso, for which I received many awards and recognitions, for start-up product and brand development. During the first year, I managed to sell Roispresso through my own network, in London, to the Hilton Hotel as well as to the Nobu restaurant. In the same year, the product penetrated markets in Dubai, Hong Kong and Germany. Further development continued in London where I lived for two years and had a priceless opportunity to learn, in the leading business environment, the skills of international sales, marketing and brand development. I attended Grocery Accelerator program i.e. an accelerator focused on FMCG. Under the mentorship of successful businessmen who worked on leading positions for large multinational companies such as Nestle, Britvič, etc., I was learning brand development and marketing skills on international markets. As part of the accelerator I had opportunity to attend a lot of educational conferences in London focusing on FMCG. It provided me large experience in the area of brand development and international marketing focusing on FMCG.

- Innovation and product development (Roispresso), procurement and logistics // the product was selected at International competition as Best new functional drinks, placed in the finals for the best Slovenian business idea, and the company occupied the 2nd place for the best business plan
