Co-founder & chief well-being officer

Our Chief Well-Being Officer, Mela, is the epitome of a life-balance dog. Regardless of the coaching needs, she ensures everyone gets a dose of attention and tenderness in exchange for snuggles and biscuits. Mela oversees work-life balance factors both in the office and at home, ensuring everyone enjoys daily walks and basks in the sun in our office garden.

Mela believes in the significance of work for a well-rounded work-life balance, especially when it involves daily tasks. On rainy days, her favorite spot is the chill sofa in the office, where she provides a daily dose of well-being coaching to those who join her during breaks. It's worth noting without playing during work. It is non-negotiable for her and an essential part of her well-being philosophy.

MSc. Zvonimira Schreckeis

Founder & CMO

Originally from sunny Split, Croatia, Zvoni began her entrepreneurial journey in 2008 after completing her master's degree in Management. With her final theses, she envisioned positioning Croatia as a work-life balance destination and pioneered one of Eastern Europe's first online platforms for cluster marketing, focusing on rural development and sustainable business practices.

Seeking new horizons due to the unstable business climate in Croatia, she made the strategic move to Berlin. Armed with a clear vision and a determination to “Make it real” in Germany as an entrepreneur with a migrant background, she immersed herself in the dynamic Berlin startup Event scene.

Freelancing with experts at Berlin Valley and navigating pandemic challenges, Zvoni dedicated herself to crafting a "strive to thrive" concept. She founded IBC, then with her German tandem partner, today her husband dedicated herself in supporting migrant entrepreneurs. She earns further specialization in Online Marketing Management and Change Management. 

Today, she is a passionate female and migrant entrepreneur activist and a proud member of the Female Business Angels group. She also takes pride in being a free coach, funded by the government, to support all unemployed individuals venturing into entrepreneurship.
