What others say
Nikola has the rare ability to combine technical knowledge and business savviness, allowing him to understand customer needs and explain technical solutions to people in a clear and coherent manner. This makes him a valuable asset to companies of any size. He has been a great partner so far and his advice and support have been outstanding.
– Neni Pogarcic / Head of Agency US East at Google –
When I think of startups – I think of Nikola. I’ve collaborated closely with Nikola on multiple projects. He is truly capable of selflessly sharing his time and knowledge. He is a true leader and entrepreneur with an amazing intuition to identify ambitious startups, but more importantly, he has the know-how to lift them up to the next level. Nikola has a good combination of developed soft and tech skills, which makes him able to discuss both the technical details with his engineering co-workers and business-related details with the decision-makers and partners.
– Aleksandar Zivkovic / Software Engineer at Cisco –
I had the opportunity to work with Nikola on a software project in 2018. I was lucky enough to have been able to meet him in person as well a few months later. We had interviewed lots of teams for this project and Nikola’s company was by far the most professional and impressive. Meeting him in person only furthered our belief we made the right decision in working with Nikola. Great guy on a personal level and fantastic business.
– Ben Stoodley / CEO of Best Landing Co –
Nikola is the rare partner you trust with the keys to your business. He handles the front end for a growing SaaS product. He’s the first person I call to soundboard all new initiatives and trust him & his team to deliver quality results. You can count on him for every phase of product development.
– Chris Moreschi / Founder & CEO at GorillaDesk –
Nikola is the proud founder of the Bridgewater Labs, an innovative IT company. With his team of Superheroes, he shapes new technology solutions, with a startup speed and an enterprise scale. That gave him the opportunity to be involved in some really cool, innovative technology upgrades that make him wake up with a smile every day. But, instead of bragging, we’ll let his projects do the talking.
Experience in leading, defining, and delivering high-quality tech products from scratch led Nikola to become the “Best Young Manager in Serbia” for 2017. He is deeply committed to putting client needs first, by providing solutions that go above and beyond expectations. He sees it as a calling, not just a job.
That kind of enthusiasm and expertise gave Nikola the chance to be a part of several multi-million dollar projects all around the world. He had a pleasure to see everything and to learn a lot. If you become his mentee or a part of his audience, he will gladly share it with you.
In his spare time, Nikola tries to give back to the community by working with young entrepreneurs. As a part of the Google Launchpad Week, and TechStars events, he had an amazing chance to be a startup mentor and judge for some great young entrepreneurs across Europe.
