Saara Žigić

 

Born and raised in LA, California. Acquiring a dual citizenship, Saara comes to Sarajevo every summer since the age of 5. As a kid, she had the idea to combine people and animals in one place. Living in LA and Sarajevo, she noticed numerous dog parks around the city, however there are no pet friendly cafes. Because she’s a huge cat lover as well, I wanted to combine my love for dogs and cats into one pet friendly stress-free environment. That’s when the idea of creating a pet cafe catering to both was born.

“Joining the LEADER Project Entrepreneurship Program ultimately helped me develop a local business plan that would create opportunities for my community. What were just ideas before has now become a realistic endeavor. I was able to learn more about what a business is and how to create a functional business plan that I’ve began implementing into my own future business. I’ve been encouraged to open my Pet Cafe  not only because of the knowledge I’ve gained from the workshop, but also for my love for animals.”

    "I've been part of the Leader project – Entrepreneurship Program,  organized by Restart, in May 2018, and I need to emphasize that this was a widely useful workshop and educational program which gave us, the participants, not only, applicable ways to cope in the realms of today's harsh business world, but it also learned every future entrepreneur how to apply the learned information in specified fields and areas of interest."

    "Attending Leader program was really an unique experience and hands-on business education that can not be acquired just anywhere. I believe everyone should use the opportunity and attend Leader because this knowledge can prove useful in many different situations and not just in starting a business. It certainly did in my case. In addition to this, it is a great chance to widen your networking circle."

    "I started on the realization of my business idea a year ago and I am actively involved in the development of it. It is something I am really passionate about and what makes me up till late at night. But I wouldn't change it for the world!"
