"Creativity is intelligence having fun."

In a time of crisis, create something.

After the last presidential campaign, Czech media named me an author of unexpectedly successful campaigns. I'm also founder of several tech startups as well as natural born communicator and entrepreneur, passionate about new opportunities.

 

Originally from Prague, Czech Republic, I lived and worked in Kuwait City (Kuwait), Amsterdam (NL), Gothenburg (SWE) and Basel (CH), among others. 

 

I provide mentoring, strategic advisory, build brands and create insightful and remarkable creative ideas that disrupt and change the existing status quo. I am in fond of experiential marketing for its virtually endless opportunities.

​​

In 2017 I founded Foodgroot.com, a revolutionary tech startup providing an independent food rating and personalised grocery shopping recommendations.

 

In 2018 I was Chief Strategist in the presidential campaign for Marek Hilšer, where we created the most effective campaign in the history of political elections (CZK 1.3 for one vote).

In 2019 I created a campaign for the National Gallery Prague connecting its flagship impressionist exhibition with absinthe. Martin Zufanek - the uncrowned king of Czech distillers - bottled 50 limited edition bottles with superb Dubied Abisnthe 1798, renowned graphic designer Aleš Najbrt created an original label. The subsequent auction raised 1.5 million CZK that were donated to National Gallery.

In 2020 I founded two new tech startups: Petgroot.com - a pet industry e-commerce aggregator with pet food scoring system and Ikiseq.com - the world's first Ikigai exchange where you can invest in people's potential at the beginning of their career.
