“To be an entrepreneur means to live a few years in a way that nobody wants in order to spend the rest of your life in a way that most can’t.”

Adrian Ježina, a new member of the CRANE invested in NanoDIY

The new NanoDIY investor Adrian Ježina was introduced on yesterday’s press conference held in the renovated co-working space of the business incubator in Koprivnica,  In the last few months,  NanoDIY achieved several major successes including three awards at the largest European conference of business angels EBAN Winter University 2016, the investment from the President of the Croatian Business Angel Network (CRANE) Davorin Štetner and the most recent investment from Adrian Ježina, the founder B.net and a member of CRANE.

NanoDIY is a startup from Koprivnica that created an innovative way of textile printing that does not require a high expertise of the user  nor a significant investment to start a printing business. Its dealings are present in the global market where the majority of their products are being sold throughout Europe, but will soon expand towards the American and Asian market. By the end of this year they plan to present two more products and recruit new people in order to make it all happen.  Although many foreign investors have already showed interest and a dozen more are still await negotiations, they have chosen Adrian because of his desire to be an operational investor and because, as they say, they need the experience from which they can learn and further develop the product.

Proslava-druge-investicije-300x300Adrian Ježina is a new member of CRANE and the founder of B.net who shifted from the inability to pay salaries to founding a company worth 93 million Euros in ten years time. After transitioning to Vipnet, he continued managing B.net as the CEO who is in charge of strategy, technology, operations, sales, marketing and content development. The motivation for investing in NanoDIY came from the team’s enthusiasm, their entrepreneurial spirit and the overall energy, which he considers to be major prerequisite for success. Moreover, he adds that NanoDIY can become a global player because a well presented product of great quality knows no limits.

The next big step for NanoDIY is to visit the world’s most famous graphic fair in Hamburg.  Although it is difficult to be granted admission to the fair,  with the help of the new investment they will be able to open out towards large global producers and bring their business to a new level.
