Designing and supporting projects is a challenge that Geza takes every day—incubation of an Industry 4.0 startup, business development of a geophysicist company, or product development of a mailbox producer. His experience ranges from business process management to organizational development, from application specification to risk management and financial planning. Hard data and human intuition are equally important in his workflow.
