Campaigns Created

Over the past three decades, I have been involved in strategic planning, discovering and building new companies, launching them to market and supporting their growth. I have worked on major international projects as well as own startups in Europe and the Middle East.

I combine sound track record in building new digital businesses and products with an experience leading multi-disciplinary teams, top-tier consulting experience in strategy/digital transformation, an effective managing and engaging senior stakeholders, the ability to break down complex business problems logically and systematically, the capability to thrive in a fast-paced, entrepreneurial, and cross-functional environment, while working with ambiguity and uncertainty. Obvious part is knowledge of the tech scene, digital trends and technologies with humbleness and aspiration to help develop people and cultivate future talents.

I have started in the 90's in communication industry that has in my case naturally evolved from marketing and advertising into venture building and innovation. Obsessed with the infinite question "what's next", I am still engaged today with mediation of contacts with something new that can enrich and improve human life.


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


In 2018 I led the presidential campaign of 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: - an independent petfood rating and personalised shopping recommendations integrated into an e-commerce ecosystem and - the world's first Ikigai exchange platform where you can invest in people's human potential in the beginning of their career. And last but not least, in 2021 I founded Climatica - the first donation-based platform where you can erase your climatic debt.

In 2020 I also joined Creative Dock - the fastest growing venture builder in Europe in the position of Head of Innovation and Creative Innovation Lead. We build fast growing ventures for large corporate companies around the world. Creative Dock is driven by delivery, as well as a core mission to build strong and provocative business models that impact societies and people’s lives in positive ways.

In 2023 I co-founded an Ethical Venture Building company FEB VENTURES focusing on innovation-as-a-service. The Discovery phase is fuzzy, complex and risky business, with the potential of missing market needs. Our proven methodology guides you safely through the discovery phase, mitigating risks associated with early-stage innovation and ensuring that we identify and act on genuine opportunities.
