Jan de Jong moved to Croatia in 2006 at the age of 22 when he founded M+ Group. Today, M+ Group has a listing on the Zagreb Stock Exchange and employs over 8.000 people across the region. After he made his successful exit from M+ Group in 2016, he founded Webpower Adria – the first company in the region specialising in email marketing automation.
He has since become a father of 4, and a household name – championing the digital nomad visa in Croatia, to make this one of the most attractive places on the planet to live the remote work lifestyle.
When he’s not making the digital nomad lifestyle in Croatia your #1 choice, Jan is also the co-founder of a company bringing innovative agriculture to Croatia from his native Dutch roots.

Why Jan founded DNA:
As an entrepreneur, I have always focused my efforts on delivering operational excellence in highly competitive industries. Now that Croatia has introduced its “digital nomad visa” – it’s time to shift focus to deliver the best Mediterranean experience to all digital nomads that decide to turn Croatia into their temporary home-country. Through coordinated efforts made by the DNA Croatia, we want to contribute to this mission by uniting and serving digital nomads and all other stakeholders.
