— Short introduction

I’m Ivan Zatko. I’ve explored the world. Run ultra marathons. Now I work as a freelancer in crowdfunding and early-stage startups.

I am the first Slovak to be featured in Medium’s largest publication The Startup and to give a talk about crowdfunding on CrowdCrux podcast. I was recently interviewed by Forbes and Slovak Startup. And I am happily married.

I only join teams who see challenges as part of the journey. And share the same values as I do.

My crowdfunding campaigns have been featured on Forbes, The Verge, New Atlas, Mashable, New York Post, Wallpaper, Dezeen and many more.  And what’s even more important, they have 100% success rate.

Want advice on how to crowdfund your idea into reality?

50% client work. 50% passion.

In 2016 I co-founded a company The Projekt which makes notebook The Žurnál. We have sold out 1st and 2nd version & are planning big things in the 3rd.

A year later I also joined Benjamin Button as a company integrator with a mission of bringing jobs-to-be-done innovations into parenting.

Sharing is caring

I am a knowledge junkie and I always seek a good book.

I write about crowdfunding and other things on my Medium blog and I share the best stuff I find all over the internet in a monthly newsletter for my friends.
