Ecosystem Hero of the Year

Balazs Slezak

Description

My whole life is about startups. After being a founder myself (Forma Eyewear, acquired in 2018), I have been active in the ecosystem as an early stage mentor.

I believe early stage teams need the “do things that don’t scale” kind of support above all else. I’m with my mentees in the trenches and they can turn to me for help with any challenge. I love creating mentor-mentee relationships across borders. Since early 2019, I have mentored around 80 startups from 10 different countries (with Design Terminal, Hiventures, Demium, *ship Festival, Hack The Crisis Finland, RESTART2020).

Beside my role as a mentor, I’m the founder and CEO of Wozify, an engineering firm that creates software and hardware products for startups.
