He sold blueberries on the Czech-Austrian border, assembled cheap jukeboxes for pub owners in his home town and imported foreign electronic cigarettes. In 2012 he founded Skypicker (today´s Kiwi.com) leveraging the local tech talent pool in Brno, Czech Republic and began development of the unique flight combination algorithm that has powered the company’s 7,000%-plus revenue growth over the last four years.
