Strategic entrepreneurship, digital businesses
Creating a real impact through innovation is my passion. That passion is fueled by hands-on experience spreading through a decade of actually designing, shipping, continuously improving (or sometimes killing) products, services, businesses. I feel extremely lucky to have hands-on experience in coding, Agile coaching, UX design, product management, business modelling, strategy, innovation. Better yet, I've got the chance to work with various scales of companies on various levels. I've worked with local startups as well as global scaleups. And with local holdings as well as global conglomerates. Now, as the London Director of ATÖLYE, I'm on a mission to prove ATÖLYE way of working is uniquely valuable on a global scale. This opportunity is the ultimate way to satisfy my passion for creating real impact through innovation. ATÖLYE is a truly unique design company that exemplifies what "the edge of the organization" means. We provide design services (from service design to architecture to business design) with a unique operating model (a carefully curated community consisting of clients, freelancers and our own team who "lives" and "learns" together as well as working) that enable us to expand capabilities and scope on the fly in a seamless fashion. And most importantly, we do all these with a caring approach and end-to-end mindset as we believe that the true impact is only possible when people care about what they do and willing to take on the entire journey from a fuzzy idea to actual delivery.
