He invented, financed, created, and commercialised the fastest image recognition technology in the world. He was a co-creator of a web portal aggregating events from the entire Poland, which was later on taken over by an international media concern.
Arek knows the taste of failure (4 bankruptcies), the bitterness of being in conflict with investors, unsuccessful processes of sales, and utterly misconceived ideas. He based his whole career on building further companies and enterprises. Many of them were unsuccessful.
He was a speaker at key business events, conferences such as: Digital Creativity in Dallas, Advertising Week in New York, Vator.Tv in San Francisco, Start-up Week in Vienna, the Top 500 Investors meeting in Warsaw, The Lewiatan’s Business Angels Gala in Warsaw. His work and ideas have drawn the attention of the most influential media in the world, such as The Huffington Post, Harvard Business Review, Forbes, Newsweek, and others. Brief magazine called him “One of the most creative Poles in business”. Arek is an inspiring leader, an efficient activist, and a fantastic observer, who introduces large corporations with new business development paths.
