Aljosha Novakovic

San Francisco Bay Area

My expertise comes more in the field of general health entrepreneurship, especially in Latin America. Medko is a platform that makes it easy for patients to find and connect with the best private doctors in Latin America. I know online marketing, and how to build a doctor patient community. I do not have as much experience with devices, insurances, or the healthcare system in the US.

Reviews

  • EW
    I had the luxury of studying alongside my loyal friend Aljosha Novakovic during our time in the UCSB Technology Management Program. I witnessed first hand his innovative cogitation when approaching challenges and puzzles. Mr. Novakovic combines a clear head with a proud work ethic. His studies abroad, combined with a passion for learning have made him very knowledgeable and intelligent. A modern entrepreneur, I eagerly await news of his achievements.

    As a founding father for Delta Tau Delta at UC Santa Barbara, Aljosha was instrumental in recolonizing the fraternity. His strengths in operational execution were key and without his leadership as Vice President, it is unclear whether we would have succeeded in becoming the only fraternity to successfully transition from colony to chapter at UCSB in our four years as students. I would highly recommend Aljosha for any position requiring operational focus with creativity.
