Mladi podjetnik – A company? Why not!

Yesterday me ane my dear friend Isabel attended a free business event on Faculty of Economics, organized by Mladi podjetnik. The purpase of the event was presenting a few successful stories as an inspiration for all of us that still dream to be successful entrepreneurs.

First there were two guys that have bachelors degree in Economics, but started a business with burgers. Well, not just any burgers, but Hood burgers. Tiring at first, they said, but a very successful business case, making more than 600 thousand euros per year. I didn’t like their presentation, though. Both of them were speaking confusingly as they had no time for the preperation for the presentation. The main point of their half an hour speach was that we should develop an idea and count on our intuition. And to never to close doors to new potential partners. Pretty smart, guys, I agree.

The second story was the goat story with a coffee mug, which I don’t undersand. At all. Unpractical design of a mug, that you can take with you and wear it like a purse. Say what?? What would I wear a coffee mug as my fashion accessory. I find it kind of silly, but the target are not Slovenians. But the team kick the Kickstarters asses and gather more than 400.000 dollars. So, good job, I say! Again, he stressed how the story is important while doing business.

What is interesting for me is his point of view about 4 P’s of marketing. He says they are working especially on the Product of the four P’s, so the Promotion runs itself without being too expensive. Smart!

There were some more speakers but not so business oriented and that’s why not so interesting. You could see that even with the croud. For every following speaker there were less listeners. And in the end even me and Isabel couldn’t withstand. :P

So we left from … then not so full crowd. :D
