Meeting me – Borna Grunbaum

I am a digital marketing student at the University of Portsmouth, coming from a small European country called Croatia. I have been interested in business, entrepreneurship and creative work since my childhood. This also proves my interest in this project as a real-life project that I want to develop for a long-term success.

Currently, I am a digital marketing freelancer currently working with 3 clients (2 Instagram pages, and a webshop) doing photography, editing, filming, branding and other campaigns. Before that, I have been a part of a lot of creative projects like Top 10 Croatian Business ideas, marketing congresses, my own vlogging community website etc. (you can find out more on this website on my portfolio web page or my LinkedIn profile – click here).
