Top Croatian Entrepreneur Invited to Give Stanford Lecture


Mate Rimac was recently named in a list of the 28 people shaping, shaking and stirring up Europe…

Croatian innovator Mate Rimac, who is the CEO of the hugely successful Rimac Automobile company, has been invited to hold a lecture at the prestigious Stanford University in California.

Rimac, who employs around 120 people at his base on the outskirts of Zagreb, caught the attention of the world’s media after his production of the Concept One, the world’s first electric super car, and also the world’s most advanced electric bicycle, the Greyp G-12 bike. He also develops a number of other accessories and was involved in the initial stages of developing the world’s first electric yacht.

“I have given similar lectures in Austria and Holland. Because of my commitments running the company I have to turn down a lot of requests, but Stanford is something special,” Rimac, who will talk to students at what is one of the world’s leading educational institutes in January, told 24sata.


Rimac will speak next month at Stanford
