I am working on changing the Czech Republic from the home of assembly lines to the innovation hub of Europe. One accelerator program at a time. Or two. Or three 😉
I am usually the author of the methodology behind it, speaker and facilitator of the startup workshops.
Innovation Laboratory is a practical project seminar designed for the students of the Charles University. The main goal is to experience what it actually means to bring some new product to the market and if that is the right career choice for the student. And to build some great things along the way.
