About Dr. Michael Glazer
Dr. Glazer began his finance and advisory career in New York and is now based in Southeast Europe, where for almost 25 years he has practiced as an investment banker and business advisor. Soon after he arrived in SEE, he and two local partners founded what became Croatia’s leading independent securities firm. He was elected Founding President of the American Chamber of Commerce in Croatia (the first AmCham in ex-Yugoslavia) and founding Vice President of the Croatian Turnaround Management Association.

His strong background in entrepreneurship and technology (he was a systems analyst and was CIO of several of the firms that he established) and his skill in team and project management has led him to develop specialties in technology transfer, in working with technology-based startups and scaleups and in advising C-suite executives.
Dr. Glazer’s past and present clients include a bioinformatics scaleup which he advised on business expansion and on development and commercialization of a novel software solution, a Croatian manufacturing cluster, several developers of advanced software suites and a Croatian manufacturing cluster.
