Meet The Co-founder!
4th office was conceptualized and co-founded by Bostjan Bregar, CEO and Andrej Kuscer.
“I’ve been in the B2B enterprise software market for 25 years and not much has changed in that time, but things are about to be disrupted. I’m passionate about bringing disruption to tech in business – I want to change the way the world works, for the better. I recognize that tomorrow’s big successes will come from today’s small startups”, says Bostjan.
Know 4th Office Better!
The story of 4th Office started 10 years ago when co-founders Bostjan Bregar and Andrej Kuscer brought life to their desire of helping businesses transform the way they work.

What Inspired It All?
“We noticed email just wasn’t working anymore – it’s all-pervasive, yet kills productivity and intrudes into our lives. The personal struggle to get a good balance of work and family life is the story of every person building their own business – they have their family at home but they’re spending a lot of time at work and on the business. It’s this story that made me want to create a tool that helped individuals succeed in business and still have time with their family”, says Bostjan.
On Road Blocks Faced & Competitors!
Like most startups, getting the word out about the product was the duo’s greatest challenge. Further, in terms of competition, Slack, IBM Verse, Microsoft and Basecamp pose as potential competitors. These are big players in the market. However, 4th Office differentiates as it creates the balance between fun and work by focusing on deliverables.
