We do so to improve disease prediction and to offer people personalized recommendations on leading a healthier lifestyle.

Flashboard Pro

Flashboard Pro is both bigger and more powerful than Flashboard Mini. My main goal was to make the ride as comfortable as possible. For that reason I developed the Airless Tires. Watch the video to see the product in action.

Flash Mobility - Startup

During my study in the first year of high school, my friend and I founded a company that brought electric skateboards to the Czech market. In the beginning, we focused on selling OEM electric skateboards under the brand name Boardmobile, so we could prove that it was a viable idea. After growing the business, we received a seed investment to expand our concept even more. We developed a new line of products called Flashboards. At the peak of our business, our team had consisted of separate hardware, software, marketing, and business departments. My role as a co-founder was the leadership of the hardware development department.

Coworking space

While studying at my high school, I saw an unfulfilled need amongst other classmates. The root of our problem was that we wanted to work together on various projects, but we didn’t have any space. At the same time, I founded an electronics club at school. With all of that, we needed some space to work and meet. So we decided to build a coworking space at an abandoned part of our school. I had presented the idea to our principal, and he agreed to support us and fund our initiative. We built the first coworking space at our school by ourselves, eventually expanding the whole idea into the Next Zone to accommodate more active students working on their projects and startups.
