The CC story

In 2017, Iva Sladic Keco left her corporate job and launched her own company, WakeMake, driven by her passion to bring human-centered design methodologies to more people.

Many successful projects and a global pandemic later, Iva witnessed the potential of true collaboration while connecting with people across the globe who were also inspired by the same ideas and aspirations.

In 2022, Iva and long time colleagues Brian Greenwald and Ajay Parasrampuria coalesced around a vision: to advance the transformational power of collaboration to deserving leaders, teams, and organizations everywhere. 

As a result, in April 2023, Curious Collaborations was born.
