Our CEO Ivana Škrlec has won the Award for best Perspective Entrepreneur in 2022 by Women in Adria! The award ceremony took place on November 3 at the Aristos Hotel in Zagreb. Ivana Bojčić, owner of the company BoLingo (Micro-Entrepreneur of the Year), and Petra Čikara Mikić, owner of the Čikara trade (Heiress Entrepreneur of the Year), were also awarded. Congratulations to them!

Female entrepreneurship promotion

Ivana Matić, founder of Women in Adria, opened the ceremony. She emphasized the importance of these awards in promoting female entrepreneurship: „With these awards, we want to highlight the impact of female entrepreneurship on the economic and demographic growth, as well as the importance of supporting female entrepreneurs with young children.” The jury president, Ognjen Bagatin, explained what decided the winners: „They had vision, courage, and perseverance and that is why they won. Every leader knows that if he doesn’t have a purpose, no one will follow him on the path to success.”

Gender equality

Member of the European Parliament, Predrag Matić, spoke via video call. He emphasized the role of this award in the fight for gender equality. Member of the European Parliament, Sunčana Glavaš, also gave some motivational words: „You have the right to fight for what you want in your business. And don’t forget that if they don’t see you, they won’t know that you are successful and can be an example to them.”

Award for the entire Altera team

„I would like to thank you for the nomination for the Best Entrepreneurs Award. It’s not easy to stand out among so many strong, successful women, and then win a prize. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!” said Ivana and added: „I would like to thank my colleagues, who follow me on this journey. It isn’t always easy. But the effort paid off. Today we are the leading company in the rental of pavilions and equipment for weddings and events.” She dedicated the award to her daughter, who is her greatest motivation.

We are extremely proud that the long-term effort and work of the entire Altera team led by our director have been recognized and rewarded.
