Vedran was born in Croatia in 1990. Soon after, with his mom, he left for Serbia, Sid, where he spent his early childhood. At the age of 18, bought his first computer and during the first year at the Uni of Novi Sad landed a gig that consisted of running digital projects for management consulting SMBs. After leading various teams and traveling the world, he settled in Austria managing projects for Cisco, Microsoft, Samsung, BCG, National Bank of Austria, etc.
Following success in Austria, he then moved to Belgrade/Nis where he helped to grow a boutique software company weareneopix.com. The dream was always to find a way into North America. In 2016 Vedran got invited to come to Toronto and join a SaaS B2B venture, myautoshop.net (Sylidra.com), as a COO. The startup grew to 50 customers, product readiness and Nissan-Infiniti accelerator. He then parallelly joined another self-funded SaaS B2B, Autoklose.com, where he was responsible for growth (currently CMO). The venture reached $500k ARR in its first year.
Avid book consumer, in his spare time Vedran continuously works with startups & agencies around the world and enjoys good old blues (internet-taught amateur guitarist).
