HotelQuickly

Co-founder, CTO

I co-founded HotelQuickly; an online travel agent focused on the last-minute hotel booking.

In 2013, we built and launched a world-class mobile product (iOS & Android only) that make last-minute hotel-booking fast and rewarding. Our vision was to help travelers enjoy the spontaneous moments.

In 2016, we opened up the booking window to allow customers book months in advance.

In 2017, we launched a website and started offering world-wide inventory, too.

As a co-founder, I have worn multiple hats: a developer, CTO, manager (in my teams up to 40 people in total), company leader, entertainer, Agile enthusiast, and much more.

Accelerating Parents

Founder

In 2017, I started a membership site for passionate parents who are (or want to start) accelerating kids so that they become leaders in 2030s.

I interview other expert parents and share insights with the members.

With my wife Martina, we create educational content, video courses, and digital products for our members.

BookFan

Co-founder, CEO

In 2011, I co-founded BookFan, a local social network for book lovers – well before Goodreads became Goodreads! :)

With my co-founder Josef Nevoral, we raised seed funding from angel investors, had 200,000+ MAU and won the Idea of the year competition.

Unfortunately, we were not able to monetize it, and due to negative cash flow, I had to kill this project eventually.

Toastmasters

Club President

Despite being an introvert, I got passionate about public speaking and was a member of Toastmasters back in Prague (Czech Republic) for almost four years.

I became a leader of the Bohemian Toastmasters club, taking almost all roles including the Club President.

Later on, I co-founded another clubPrague Business Toastmasters – and organized events like Toastmasters Residential Weekend for ~100 people.

You can find my detailed resume on Linkedin, of course ;-)

Fun facts

Celebrating Thai New Year (in April!) in local shirts 🌼

In our family, we are obsessed with reading. We read everywhere, everything!

Gymnastics is becoming my favorite sport, besides running. Exercising every day, but still a veeery long way to go.

Enjoying reading books to Thai kids in a kindergarten. One of them started crying though...

Cozy coffee shops are my favorite spots to work at. Americano is a must!

My second favorite working place: an air-con'ed coffee shop with a beautiful view. Thailand rocks!

Mentoring

Startup mentor


Since I started my first company in 2010, I went through lots of ups and downs. I'm happy to share some of the learnings and best practices with those who are kicking off a new project or company.

Let me know if you need a judge for some startup event or hackathon, or a personal mentoring or coaching.
