I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Technical University of Munich, and a business mentor with internationally gained experience in Economics and Management. I defended my PhD thesis titled “Venture Capital and Institutions” and was awarded with PhD degree in Management and Engineering from Politecnico di Milano (Italy). I spent 6 months in a research visit at Utrecht University School of Economics (U.S.E). My research appeared in Small Business Economics, Foresight and STI Governance among others and I have presented at academic conferences such as WINIR, IECER etc.. In addition, I have been acting as a consultant within startup communities, both in developed and emerging countries. I am co-founder of UK School in Kosovo – and have a strong desire to link my scientific knowledge with the business world.
