The evolution of Konstruktor company from 2004 until the present day. The first jobs, the first obstacles and major successes… An interview dedicated to budding entrepreneurs with the will, knowledge, and vision!

“We got our first job at a construction fair in 2004, where we rented a small stand. And when you do one good job, you get two or three new ones, and that starts spreading like a forest fire. With a constant raising of the bar and facing ever more serious challenges, a company matures and grows. Any other way leads to stagnation.
The fledgling company had a small team of engineers and provided consulting services. Back then, as well as today, when it has hundreds of employees, the whole operation of the company is based on knowledge. Without the essential knowledge, no idea or business venture can ever be successful…”

In the interview for the “I, Entrepreneur” series, Mr. Ognjen Kisin, the Executive Director of the Konstruktor Group, spoke about his entrepreneurial beginnings in 2004, the inevitable obstacles, pushing the boundaries, and tackling ever bigger and more demanding jobs.

We recommend this video to budding entrepreneurs who have the will, knowledge, and vision!

The team members performed their work tirelessly, in a disciplined manner and without fear.
As a company, we have justified the importance of our role in the market, and you have once again displayed the qualities this team is well-known for: professionalism, knowledge, and collegiality“.
