Tamara Markotic is a Founder Institute graduate and a Co-Founder of SightRun.
She studied Hotel management in Switzerland after which she continued her career in the USA. She has over 10 years of experience in various Hospitality and Travel positions including managing a boutique hotel and a tour-operator for the Mediterranean.
But instead of focusing on climbing the corporate career ladder, she wanted to have her own company. She started her entrepreneurial path with Founder Institute, but soon after graduating, she gave up on the idea she developed during the program.
Running soon became a very important part of her life and together with her team, she started a travel agency for running sightseeing tours called Run Zagreb. But soon they realized the potential to transfer that service online and applied for a local startup competition. After winning Startup Factory Zagreb the team received a grant for development and SightRun was born.
SightRun provides audio tours which combine running and touristic sightseeing and thus help runners to have a great, stress free run even when they travel while getting to know the city at the same time.
