What were you doing prior to joining Kvarko?
I graduated from the Wroclaw University of Science and Technology (biotechnology with a specialization in pharmaceutical biotechnology) in 2011. In the meantime, I started to work at the Wroclaw Technology Park (WTP) as a laboratory specialist and I got a PhD degree at the same university in the field of chemistry (specialization: analytical chemistry). Thanks to my ongoing work at WTP, I’ve had the opportunity to cooperate with many amazing start-ups as well as manage my own projects and thus have learnt a lot about day to day operations, and the challenges and problems entrepreneurs face. These past experiences are very helpful when comes to helping our startups at Kvarko.
