One Croatian entrepreneur has featured on Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list for 2017 which has just been released.
Mate Rimac, who is the founder and CEO of Rimac Automobili, was given the honour of being on this year’s Forbes 30 Under 30 list in the Industry category, which features the best young innovators, entrepreneurs, and leaders spanning all across Europe.
Rimac, who has been one of Croatia’s recent success stories, develops and produces high-performance electric vehicles, including the Concept One, the world’s first electric super car, drivetrains and battery systems.
“Rimac’s aim is for a company that’s cooler than Tesla, building electric cars are not only efficient and environmental friendly, but also be fast and exciting. The goal is to build-up an automotive company in Croatia – which never had a car industry and very few technology-based companies.The company also makes bikes. Rimac started in his garage, and has since won multiple awards for his technology”, writes Forbes’.
The criteria for selection is based on a number of factors, including entrepreneurial mindset and the potential that those on the list have exhibited to disrupt their chosen field over the next half-century.
