In 2009 Rimac Automobili was born and in 2011 the Rimac Concept_One became the world’s first true electric supercar. With the 2018 launch of the C_Two from a dedicated, skilled, and passionate team in Croatia, Mate looks set to join the pantheon of entrepreneurial businessmen that make their dreams reality and prove that limits are reserved for others. Today, Rimac is recognized as a trusted partner by many global OEMs, trickling-down the hypercar technology to many applications. After two venture capital raising rounds, concluded in June 2018 with a strategic partnership with Porsche AG, Mate remains the majority shareholder of both Rimac and its subsidiary company Greyp Bikes.
