      I recommend COTRUGLI to anyone who wants to acquire full understanding of how to start, develop and grow successful business. Or to someone who wants to know how to be more successful at what she or he is doing by knowing more about all the aspects of the environment that surrounds her/him. The other major reason to be part of COTRUGLI is the opportunity to build good network of friends from various business domains across the whole Balkan region. Last but not least is the fun we are having during this journey and we have tons of pictures to prove that.COTRUGLI so far has surprised me, made me read a lot more, made me think about new and different stuff, gave me useful tools and knowledge about starting a new business. I didn’t know finance management can be so much fun or that marketing can inspire me to read on the subject for about 1 month. Most importantly, almost every module required me to think about the various aspects of my company and almost obliged me to apply my knowledge at work.
