5th Quarter Ventures

Tihomir Bajic and Pedja Predin

Their strategy revolves around a proven pattern: assembling a top-notch deep tech team from the Western Balkans, complemented by a commercially savvy co-founder with a deep understanding of North American and Western European markets. This approach is reminiscent of how Eric Ries (Lean Startup) and Tiho initiated, structured, and managed the tech behind LTSE Software and the Long-Term Stock Exchange.

About 5th Quarter Ventures.

Much like UiPath's transformative impact on Romania, which propelled Earlybird and Credo to become highly successful central European VC funds, and Telerik's exit to Progress, which initiated Bulgaria's venture capital flywheel with Eleven Ventures, Pedja and Tihomir envision a similar opportunity in the Western Balkans, specifically Serbia and Croatia. Currently, Pedja and Tihomir are actively collaborating with three promising AI companies that perfectly fit this pattern and are poised to become initial investments from Fund I.

FifthQuarter.vc's unique structure mirrors this dual-residency approach, with two General Partners strategically covering key geographic regions. Pedja Predin, leveraging his financial background, divides his time between Serbia and Croatia and brings invaluable VC and unicorn operating experience to the table. On the other hand, Tihomir's background as a repeat technical co-founder, coupled with his leadership in a global network of over 200 Serbian Entrepreneurs, serves as a distributed deal flow engine.
