Meet your mentor:

Constant improvement

Date: 25.07.2024, Thursday
Time: 16:00 -18:00
Mentor: Slavo Tuleya

Learn how to gather and analyze feedback effectively from Slavo, the man who ‘stood on the non-tech side for far too long’. Since 2016, he worked as a corporate innovator at Innogy Slovakia and SKODA AUTO DigiLab Czechia, Israel, and China, and later as a VC at ZAKA.VC. In 2019, he followed his hunch and became an entrepreneur, focusing on consulting rather than building. He often avoided tech with phrases like “let’s research more” or “let’s not develop before we are 100% sure.”

In 2022, everything changed. He embraced tech, transforming Kiuub into a productized tech company and realizing that great outcomes are achievable even for non-tech people.

Now, Slavo helps non-tech individuals and companies launch digital projects using No Code, builds companies, advises founders, and speaks at events.
