How many young people haven't dreamed of being successful and achieving most of their goals at a young age? And how many adults have looked back and wondered why a certain event didn't happen differently, or why they made the wrong decision about this or that?
Well, don't worry because we will show you the stories of some young entrepreneurs who, based on good planning, effort, talent, but above all maintaining very clear and well-defined goals, managed to come out successful even in moments that were unfavorable for them.
Today, in this blog post, we are talking to Milan Petrovski, one of the few entrepreneurs who, at the age of 23, has already established his own company that works successfully on the Macedonian market.
"Well, I could not single out one experience because I think it is a very long process to define ourselves as persons and to build a character. I would say that I was shaped the most by the path I took these 3 years after opening a company. Then it was a moment where it created a habit and responsibility for me that whatever happens must be finished, and to go to the end because whatever it is, the responsibility always remains with me. Also, a very important trait that I acquired is that I mostly always started looking at things positively, and all those ups and downs that happened, in the end, turned out as they should."
"The idea behind Viseq is a platform for automating visualizations in AR (augmented reality) without customers knowing how to program. A kind of WordPress or Shopify for AR. With this platform, we make AR technology more accessible to everyone, such as restaurants being able to create menus with food to be viewed in 3D or furniture stores having an online store where you can see how your furniture would look at home before buying it."
"One of the many events that I have attended, which stands out because after the end of the event, there is an "action" that is an overall process that leads to a final product."
"Make products that you can monetize."
"Refinement of the platform, concretization of the idea, and expanding it on a global level."
"I have noticed that the harder I work, the luckier I seem to be." - Thomas Jefferson.

We are making history for the extraordinary intellectual Macedonian startup community.
As the founder of Networker, a company that directly deals with the development of startups, I firmly believe in the next generation of Macedonian businesses that can shape the world. It is precisely for this reason that we appeared as an organizer and investor at the Longest pitch marathon event, where investments were made in the business idea phase for the first time.
Being an entrepreneur means being creative, persistent, and ready to take risks, while never letting your fears limit you from achieving what you want. Clapsify, a young team of talents who managed to secure an investment of 25,000 euros at this year's Longest Pitch Marathon, is proof of possessing all these characteristics.
Are there chances for prosperity in Macedonia for every young person who sees their future here, instead of outside it? Of course, yes. The only thing they have to do is take advantage of the open opportunities offered to them.
As a banker and private investor, I have always sought out companies and businesses that share my values of creating a better and sustainable future for everyone. Over five years ago, I began investing in the 10 best Macedonian companies, which allowed me to feel the satisfaction of impacting someone's business idea.
We continue with the success stories of our Longest Pitch Marathon winners.
