Nikola Anđelić Cofounder & Chief Entrepreneur   Ex-athlete & Founder of 2 venture backed tech startups with 1 exit. Deep insight in to innovation processes. Involved in everything from funding, strategy, business and technology development. Entrepreneur with a bias towards action. Relentless and hard working.  Learning across multiple fields provides an information advantage (and therefore an innovation advantage) because most people focus on just one field. Each new field we learn that is unfamiliar to others in our field gives us the ability to make combinations. I strive to apply this multi-disciplinary approach in order to disrupt the world around me.
