July 7, 2011
Historically from scientific and engineering background. I am originally from the Czech republic where I developed an interest in writing programmes for science applications. I subsequently worked for companies in Iceland and UK in the biotechnology sector. I am keen believer in lean product development and Customer Discovery and Validation methodology. To get me outside I enjoy flying model aeroplanes.
I am currently running/forming tech company and looking to verify one or two hypothesis about potential products in the vertical software applications domain. Due to my experience in bioinformatics and cheminformatics, and the availability of local expertise in chemistry, I would like to explore opportunities in these domains in future. I am always looking for 'the big idea' and keen to hear critique to my current activities and network with like-minded people.
I have been working for several companies through my career, but following organizations gave me the most of my experience: deCODE Genetics - biotechnology, genetics, bioinformatics - Reykjavik, Iceland; Tripos Discovery Research - high throughput, screening compounds, chemistry - Bude, UK; Startup company in Bristol - software for oil and gas industry, engineering graphics, CAD ; Startup company in the Czech Republic -software for hospitality industry
Currently dividing my time between my start up business in Holsworthy and contracting in the South West area.
