Midwife union

Midwives are helping soon to be mothers give birth in the environment of their choice and defend them against obstetric violence. UNIPA unites and protects midwives in the Czech Republic.

Childbirth is the moment in time where we pick up the first real experience with the outside world. It affects us for the rest of our lives.

I want to help little people first experience the world in the way that their parents would like them to.

Emergency ventilation device

In record breaking time and pace, a group of dedicated volunteers put together a world-class emergency ventilation design. I ran a successful crowdfunding campaign to get resources for manufacturing.

The Project failed in the final stage due to a lack of commitment from academic and political partners.

Still, one of the most meaningful projects I have ever worked on.

Augmented Analytics Engine

We built an AI engine to commoditize and automate decision making. Our easy to use cloud app was good at identifying what's important in the business of the company and was ready to track the success levels of the decisions taken by company's managers.

We were selling the part of this solution called the Augmented Analytics Engine.

Gartner selected us as the Cool Vendor in the Analytics area and showcased us as an example of where the whole field of Business Intelligence is heading. This moment led to the sale of the company to Workday, Inc.
