Jakub studied economics at Charles University in Prague and spent another two years at the Stockholm School of Economics in Sweden. He worked in the field of financial analysis at SME Direkt in Sweden and as a consultant at EY Czech Republic, focusing primarily on the automotive industry. 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. At Košík.cz he is responsible for strategic projects and the agenda focused on shareholders. He is mostly involved in BI and integration projects within Mall Group.
