In 2016, he founded Webpower Adria. Today, they are the leading email service provider in the region with a local presence – directly competing against global leaders including MailChimp, Campaign Monitor, etc. In 2021, Webpower Adria was among the first companies to introduce a 4-day work week for a full-time salary.
