Jakub holds degrees in economics from the Charles University in Prague and in business and management from the Stockholm School of Economics. He previously worked in the field of financial analysis at SME Direkt in Sweden and as a consultant at EY Czech Republic. While still at school, he also dabbled in journalism, mainly at Czech Radio, and founded his own start-up, the auction platform Redukto. Even though Redukto did not conquer the market, Jakub’s passion for young firms and newly conceived projects stayed with him.
Jakub, who is also very dedicated Scout leader, was the first intern to attend Rockaway Academy and later received an offer to stay with us. After an intense period in Košík.cz, where he built Business Intelligence competence and assembled an internal BI team, was responsible for strategic projects and the agenda focused on shareholders, he is part of the Rockaway Ventures team now.
