Lorand

  • I love all things related to science & technology, particularly astrophysics, biotech, renewable energy and robotics.

  • My main activities include dealing with corporate & disruptive innovation, product conception, development & management and overseeing the operations of the startups and internal projects I'm involved in. I every now and then take on speaking engagements and mentor a handful of startups.
  • Also, for the past eight years I've been working with various agencies around the world on the campaigns of some notable companies - Jaguar, Land Rover, H&M, Duracell, Pringles and HP just to name a few.
  • My love for startups & innovation is only surpassed by my passion for science & education.
